Unable to make Tape storage work with BE 2012
We are trying to setup a BE 2012 ( evaluation version ) to allow data backups on to tape drives.
Running BE 2012 on windows 8 server.
We have a Dells PV LT2000 connected to the server via SAS interface. We have a Robotic library with 12 LTO6 tape drives .
Under Slots , I can see the tape drives labelled with barcode labels , however tape drives are showing "0 bytes capacity"
Things I have checked/done :
* Tape drivers are installed.
* Autochanger drives are native to Windows , hence shows Unknown Autochanger device in Device Manager
When i try to clean the Tape Drive , it gives error. Export/Import and "Inventory now" both give errors.
Before we installed Windows 8 on the server , it had linux with Baculla. I had labelled Tape drive then and ran some checks on the tape which were a success.
Post that we decided to drop Baculla and go ahead with BE 2012. However , I am unable to make tape work with BE 2012
Followed tape troubleshooting steps mentioned in the link and all seems to be fine.
I am not sure if I missed out anything or the issue is due to using bacula on tape drives before putting then on BE 2012.
If yes , how do i change it default ?
I have attached screen shots in the thread.
Any help will be appreciated.
