Tape Drivers for Sony AIT2

I'm trialling Backup Exec 2012. I have a Sony AIT2 tape drive, which was purchased 5-10 years ago. It still works and used to work with Backup Exec v10d / v11.

When I try to install the Symantec tape drivers for this SCSI drive using the BE 2012 wizard it doesn't install anything.

Any thoughts?

If I an't install tape drivers I can't buy BE

Hi Chris,

Is this device on the BE 2012 HCL? If not, it probably won't work...there are a number of AIT drives listed, so just check it out and verify.

If it is, report back here...

Sussed it. It's actually the SCSI adapter card missing drivers, so BE hasn't even got as far as detecting a tape drive yet.

You've cerainly helped get to the bottom of it.
