  • Hi,

    Is this just a standalone tape drive, or a tape library ?   If a tape library please make sure the medium changer in device manager shows the library name and not "unknow medium changer"

    Please run the tape library checker tool and see if that reports errors.  Once that runs then DPM should be able to use the it.

    Verify tape library compatibility
