Question about HP SureStore DAT24x6 DAT Tape Drive
OS is Windows Server 2003 with Veritas BackUp Exec. I was successfully running backups on DLT Drive. Then I installed HP SureStore DAT24x6 external and I was able to function with both the dat drive and the library changer. Then while I was running some tests with configurations I suddenly lost the functionality of the scsi changer. I have checked everything and I about to uninstall everything relative to the drive and the software and start over. It appears that I may have inadvertantly deleted a driver or something and can't seem to resolve the issue.
The one item I can't find info on is the FB setting. When I recycle the drive, the self test shows the SCSI ID and the FB setting. I don't kknow what the FB setting is? However, the robotics of the changer functions independant of the software, so I am sure the libriary hardware is okay. Can anybody help with this?
Had same issue:
try manualy clean the drive. Check that the drive has no problems reading and writing.
computer freezes because state of 1 of the tapes is lost. the sofware can't deal with that

NOTE: As an example, 2000 02/07 2:30 is displayed (February 7, 2000 at 2:30). Plugging in the numbers: (2 * 1001) + (7 * 101) + 2 + 2000 = 4711
4711 * 123 = 59453
Convert all digits to be between 1 and 4 = 131413
Add the leading 1s to make it eight digits long - 11131413
