Retrospect 8 with Tandberg Data Storageloader LTO-5

Recommended Posts

I am trying to get Retrospect setup to work with my Tandberg Storageloader LTO-5. It is a compatible product, but the auto-loader show up under storage devices and the drive itself doesn't. The drive is visible under the environment tab. Any suggestions on this.

Hi J

 

Did you ever get anywhere with this? I have the same issue with a Tandberg LTO5 using 7.6. It is supposed to be supported.

 

Regards

Have you tried restarting the engine with library powered up?  Sometimes if the library is offline when Retrospect launches Retrospect will not detect it correctly.  The following steps should fix the issue.

It has been a while since I used 7.6 so these steps might be slightly wrong.

Here are some steps to try:

1. Stop all Retrospect processes.

2. Shut down and restart the tape library.

3. Let the tape library go through its start up procedure.

4. Start all Retrospect processes.

5. Let Retrospect re-scan the tape library and hopefully everything will appear correctly.

Hi Daniel

 

Thanks for the prompt reply. Still stumped. No luck with your suggestion.

 

 

 

What do you suggest?

 

Best

I am unfamiliar with that tape library however you might want to check the SCSI ids of the devices.  Other than that there is not much else I can suggest except to contact Retrospect support.  I would also make sure your Retrospect has the latest updates.

The only thing I can suggest is to check serial and SCSI connections and port to make sure they are working correctly as it appears Retrospect is only picking up one device on the serial port.
