olav Posted August 6, 2003 Report Share Posted August 6, 2003 First I'm not certain this is a retrospect issue but I needed to start somewhere. I've got a seagate DSS-4 240 Autoloader. I shows up as a Archive Python 06241-XXX. My backup runs fine. My issue is I can't eject the tape magazine from inside retrospect, it's version 5.6 for server. The most the tape unit will do is move the tape from in the drive back to the magazine but then nothing else happens. I can eject the magazine from the front panel but if I do this I'll have to restart the server before the next tape magazine will be recognized as being in the drive. I have checked the device manager and the autoloader is disable along with the media changer. What could be the problem? I ran the tape drive diagnostics which said everything was ok.(note: I had to turn back on the windows drives for the diagnostic to run). I've tried NT passthru and ASPI didn't think that was the problem but tried it anyways, no effect. Here's the set up: IDE RAID JBOD using Adaptec 1200A controller (3 harddrives) windows 2000 server sp4 adaptec 2940 Scsi adapter (for the tape unit) Seagate 240 DSS-4 Autoloader Any help would be great. Things I'm still looking into Scsi configuration, termination and tape drive configuration. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
