Spectra Logics 2K SCSI AIT-3 Library not working

Recommended Posts

Configuration: Xserve G5 10.4.4, ATTO Tech UL3S SCSI Card (with latest driver 3.2.0), Spectra Logic 2K SCSI (Firmware 2203) AIT-3 (firmware 0200) Tape Library, Retrospect 6.1.126, Driver update


Retrospect sees the device and I can move tapes around in the library in the Devices tab, I can also erase tapes if I manually install them in the AIT-3 drive. However when initiating a scripter or immediate backup retrospect pauses at looking for tape (even with erased tape in drive) and must be force quitted. I can perform a disk back up with no problems.


I have run the Sony AIT tape diagnostic and it passes all the test. I have tried it with the latest driver update and without and with termination on and off. I have also tried slowing down the ATTO SCSI card. I have changed the SCSI ids as well.


The SCSI card and Spectra Logic library are on the approved devices list.


Any ideas ?
