Windows Server - HP ultrium 960 LTO 3 1/8 autoloader G1 Driver in Server 2008 64bit R2

Asked By Thomas on 04-May-10 10:20 AM
Hi,
I have got an HP storageworks 1/8 Autoloader G1. LTO 3.  I have tried connecting this using an LSI Ultra 320 SCSI LVD/SE card.  (and also tried an adaptec 39160).  My backup software is DPM 2010 RC.  The application LTT4.10 supplied by HP correctly addresses the autoloader - but there are no windows drivers contained within this.  I guess that symantec BE12.5 uses their own generic drivers too.  So there are drivers out there that work!  I downloaded the 64bit G2 autloader driver but this does not work  correctly.  Any clues.  I have tried HP direct but they are not intested in helping and also DPM2010 help.
Thanks

After trying various drivers, I found that the Dell Powervault 136T Autoloader drivers work fine.

Hi there,

I am in a similar situation to you. I have a HP ultrium 448 LTO2 1/8 autoloader G1.

Can you provide a link to the driver you used? I tried to find it from the Dell website but there were no windows 2008 R2 (x64) drivers available.


Thanks

I did a scan for new hardware in Device Manager and under "Medium Changer Devices" there was an Unknown Medium Changer.

Updated the driver manually by choosing to Select from a list. Windows 2008 R2 had a built in driver for a DELL PowerVault 136T Autoloader. After installing this driver, I did a rescan in DPM 2010, and it picked up the 'DELL' Autoloader and all the slots.

DPM can now control the autoloader and tape drive.

Thanks.

That seems to be the ticket.  Thanks Choong!
