DPM2010. After reinstall server and DPM2010, the second tape-drive not in DPM visible of a HPMSL6030 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I did a reinstall of the DPM2010 server. W2008R2.
    There's a HP MSL6030 tapelibary attachted to the server with 30 slots, 2 LTO-3 drives and a barcodereader.
    But after the reinstall the second LTO-3 drive becomes not visible in DPM2010. It's visible in device-manager.
    I did firmware upgrade with the library and tape tools for the libary and tape-drives.
    I restarted a couple of times the server and tapelibrary (via the webinterface).
    For one tape drive I can disable/enable in device manager, rescan in DPM2010 and it becomes visible/unvisible in DPM. Not for the second tape tape. So it sees only tape-drive.

    What else can I do?

    This powershell commands gives 4 drivers instead of 2.
