Hi,

You will have to load a driver for the Travan drive, if windows server 2000 sees the tap drive you could use NTbackup.exe to configure a back-up here is a link to read more about it. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/237310/

Good Luck

Certance DAT 72 tape drive stopped communicating with PC


We have had the same problems with HP drives and Veritas. In our case it was not the drive per se. While I am assuming that based on the date of your post that you have moved to another solution, however, I will provide for you what we did.

First shut all down, disconnect the tape drive from the scsi cable, then restart. Go into computer management and turn all your backup exec services from auto to manual. Now go to devices and do a rescan. Once this is done and you see no tape drive whatsoever in the devices shut down the server. Reconnect the scsi cable to the drive and restart.

Go back into computer management, back to devices and rescan for hardware changes. Do you see it? If so, good! Sometimes a re-seating of connectors will do that. On the other hand, it could also be a tape driver from Veritas that just doesn't work (my case), take the original driver cd that came with the unit and start that loading up. Can you see it now? Can you use windows backup to access the tape drive? Now go into services and start the services individually. Go into backup exec and see if you can read your tape. Go back to services and reset all services back to auto. If you ever have to reinstall/upgrade backup exec, think twice about using their drivers.

Segate 1TB not working with Windows 2003 Server


Is this an internal disk, or an external backup device? Two possible routes:-

Internal disk:-
Ok first thing: Does the BIOS see the drive? If not, try flashing the Server's BIOS to the latest version. Check that the system will support disks >500Gb. Try turning on LBA in the BIOS. It shouldnt affect it, but has been known to.
If its not showing here, its either faulty, dodgy cables, or not supported.

If its visible in the bios, great. Make sure you have at least one and preferably all the service packs installed. Gold (RC) only supports 500Gb drives.
Make sure you have Chipset drivers installed for the mobo. If its visible in the disk management console, then create a small disk, NTFS.

External backup device:-
Either you will need to install the software in 'compatibility mode' for xp, OR
dont use their software at all. Just plug the disk in, and it should appear as a removable device. Then use the windows backup tool to create a backup file on the external disk, and run a backup using that.

I recently upgraded a server from server 2000 to server 2003.


I presume you did not do a full system backup of your Server 2000 system/boot drive before upgrading to Server 2003? If you did, just restore your Server 2000 backup. If not, then backup all your application data files and re-install Sever 2000 as if it was a new install. Then re-install your application and restore the data files.

Another possibility is to check with your application vendor and see if they have a version that works with Server 2003.

Hi,

if you "have not" using Backup Software (e.g. Symantec Backup Exec, CA), you can try this IBM LTO-4 driver for Win2K.

Ultrium tape stuck


I highly recommend that you contact Certance for assistance. Tape drives are expensive and you don't want to risk damaging it.

If you are feeling brave you could see if you can manually eject the tape.
Remove the tape drive from the chassis and look for a manual rewind screw on the bottom or back of the drive. This is provided on some drives to allow you to manually wind the tape back into the cartrige and eject it.

I hope this helps.

DLT V4 Driver


Most tape drivers are loaded from withing the backup software. Symantec and CA work like this. I'd start there.

If not you have to start the remote storage service and check in device manager to see what it defaults to and see if will find the device for you.

Restoring files from the database


I suggest you use the Enterprise manager (gui tool to manage SQL).
Restoring a single table is not an option.
You can however restore a file or filegroup.
Make sure to backup before you start and NOT to restore database to its original name or original file location, to avoid acidents.
Normally you will have databases with only 2 files: the data at its Primary file group, and log file.
You may wish to create a new file group and move tables to the new group by recreating them there and exporting data from old table to new table. Then recreate indexes. This may prove to be complex as all tables and indexes have unique names and can't coexist with exact duplicate of them.

oh yea..... did I say backup?
well just in case backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup backup

Automatic database backup


These instructions are for Microsoft SQL Server Standard.
Go into the Enterprise manager.
Select your server on the tree view on the left. Go all the way down to "Management" and click on "Backup".
This will allow you to set up the backup.
Check the box called "Schedule". This will allow you to select a schedule for automatically performing the backup.
Good Luck.
