SOURCE: how to solve this in HP DP express

Check that the server is connecting thru the same Network card by checking the IP address.
Check that the network agent license is properly installed on the Storage domain host.
Check it is communicating thru Port 3817.

you could try opening the drive and delicately untagle the tape (with tweesers) dispose of the tap as it will get stuck again

Have fun!

I would power the server off. Blow it out with a can of air. Power it back up.. If it is still making a noise, you need to replace the fan.

I always make it a learning process for myself.
Meaning go by trial and error, making notes of what works and what not.

DDS-5 not compatible with windows 2008

I am pretty sure that the driver should be compatible with win08.

If you are using backup exec then try switching to use symantec drivers for your tape drive (setting withing BUEX)

If it is just the tape that cant be read or identified and was backed up using windows backup then try restoring the backup on a 2003 server and then copying the data across the network.

Problem with my hp Dat 160 usb backup tape drive

make sure your backup server is not preventing the media being removed

try rebooting your server, if the tape then can be ejected it is probably your backup software.

If the tape wont eject even after both server and drive have been rebooted it is probably faulty and needs to go for warranty exchange with HP
