Hello, My medium changer and tape reference did not show in device manager for Windows 2003 using a Spectra Logic T50 with internal IBM drives - Ultrium TD3 Fibre. How do I get my robot loader with these drives internal to show up cause otherwise I can't use the backup software. Thanks

    I have the same problem, after taking 1/2 successful backup the media changer is missing from device manager list and the whole thing stopped taking backup

Check that the unit is set to random mode instead of sequential mode

(FYI Sequential mode treats the whole machine as a single big tape, while random lets the software say what tape is going to be used.)

Backup using Tape LTO06 TS32000 IBM Library


Tapes do brake, at the end of the day they are mechanical devices.

Just throw it away and buy another one.
But it can be reformatted or checked using IBM utilities from the atape drivers in case you still want it (ITDT or tapeutil)

Hi Alan

Error 9E - Elevator range of motion out of specification

The Elevator (the part of the robotics assembly that moves in the vertical direction) range of motion out of specification

If possible, check for an obstruction by powering off the library and either removing a magazine or a drive to view the robot. Gently remove the obstruction, replace all magazines and drives and then power up the library.
Re-try the last operation

Error codes: 8C0A, 8C0D


This sounds like a picker fault (rotation blocked). Remove the mags from the library.
remove the power from the library (and your watch!)
Gently feel about inside the library and remove any additional tapes floating about inside.
Try again.
If this does not work then try going to http://tape-drive-repair.com as they have spare parts and pickers that they can use to fix the library.

How to allocate media with ntbackup


  1. Valueloader should have "SEQ" on front screen.
  2. Insert media into Valueloader

NTBackup will NOT see individual tapes, but treat the SDLT320 drive as a stand alone with one big tape, and the Valueloader will automatically change tape, in sequence, until the backup is done.

This is the major difference between a "Autoloader" (Sequential Mode) and a "Library" (Random Mode).

In Sequential Mode the robot (or Medium Changer) is hidden from the OS, thus only providing a tape drive. The autoloader is smart enough to see incoming data and will move Tape1 into the drive. As the media fills, the autoloader will swap media on it's own. By the time the backup is complete, whether it be one or all 8 pieces of media, Windows has no clue that it's data crossed multiple pieces of media.

In Random mode, the library is dumb and will do nothing on its own. It's told by software (i.e. Backup Exec, CommVault, etc.) when to move a tape into the drive and which tape to move!

The advantage of using Random Mode is that software runs the show and media is effeciently managed. Restores are much quicker as the exact tape a file is recorded on can be directly loaded and extracted, vs. (worst case in Seq. mode) having to go through each tape, in sequence, before getting to the file that could be on that last tape (think hours!).

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

Quantum superloader not showing in windows device manager


First off, I have to say that I have had nightmares with Quantum tape libraries. It is possible that they are still manufacturing lemons. I had one replaced 4-times and it still did not work!

Start troubleshooting by making sure that it is identified by the controller card it is connected to. You should see this during the server POST before Windows starts. If you don't see it there then Windows definitely won't see it. Send it to Quantum for service.

If the controller sees it then make sure that you are using the Backup Exec drivers. Never use the manufacturer's drivers with Backup Exec. Veritas, now Symantec, has a downloadable utility called the Device Driver Installation Wizard that will make sure you have the correct driver loaded.

I hope this helps.

Hi,

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

That thing required a SCSI terminator pack doesn't it.

If so, is it working properly.

I've had those things go out on me before leaving me to pull my hair out many times.
