I have a TL2000 from Dell and it works great. It has an LTO-4 drive in it which can back up 800GB/1600GB. I highly recommend it.

LTO tape Drive keeps ejecting tape


This could be that you are putting an LTO3 or LTO4 tape in the drive (or expired cleaning tape) Or it could be that the tape or tape drive has a problem reading the data.

Try using a brand new cleaning tape (clears the cleaning issue) and then try a brand new LTO2 tape.
If this works, then the issue was just related to your tapes, if this does not work then there must be a problem with he drive itself.

If the problem is with the drive, then contact www.tape-drive-repair.com for replacement costs. These drives are now very inexpensive and it might just be easier to replace the drive.

If you want to attempt to fix the issue yourself then respond back with a few more details and i will try and advise you on the best things to try.

To install Windows server 2000 on that machine you will need Dell PowerEdge™ Installation and Server Management CD you can download ISO file from this link:

P.S.
Burn that ISO file to CD, start installation from that CD and follow instructions it is quite simple.

Using SDLT cleaning Tape


When the drives Clean LED comes on, install a "Universal" LTO Cleaning tape, as these drives do not need routine cleaning. Only ever clean a LTO drive when it's requested, as the cleaning media itself is more abrasive than a standard tape.

Sun L25 Tape Library


what drives are inside as these units can come in several configs. For all SCSI units the Adaptec 29320 is good for fiber the qlogic cards are my prefered cards.

Drivers are available from sun for the library and drives although you can sometimes use the standard windows drivers for many drives. (search for LTO as the tape drive manufacturer in win drivers for LTO) Although best to use sun drivers if at all possible.

Library comes up as a medium changer in device manager.

What backup software are you using? If Backup exec then the latest version already comes with their drivers built in

hope this helps
