Removal of tape library object RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a new DPM 2012 R2 installation with a HPE MSL 2024 connected over SAS. However, due to a firmware failure on the SAS controller it was shown twice in Device manager, but after a downgrade this is now resolved. When I perform a rescan in DPM, the console crashes and restarts, so I want to try to remove it from the DPM console so that I can make a rescan, after the downgrade. I have tried with the remove-dpmtape PS command, but get the following error:

    Remove-DPMTape : Cannot bind parameter 'DPMLibrary'. Cannot convert the "Hewlett Packard MSL G3 Series library  (x64 based)" value of type "System.String" to type "Microsoft.Internal.EnterpriseStorage.Dls.UI.ObjectModel.Library".
