The web site now only seems to be offering a version for OpenVMS!!!! What's happened to the Windows version please
I want to know about how tape is working. Can we retrieve only last time written data on tape or we can get information of every written data on tape.
Is there any way to get the informaiton about tape whether it is full or not ?
Or How to know i need to change the tape.
Some of my LTO cartridges were previously used in a library and have barcode labels.
This barcode is somehow read my my LTO-4 (HP 1840) drive even if the barcode label has been removed from the cartridge. This is reported by backup applications and by LTT.
1. How can I read this data from the cartridge in my own code?
2. Can I re-write (new value) the barcode data of a cartridge? If so, how can I achieve this?
I've googled for ages but always ended up with sites selling barcode labels.
Running LTT (4.24) trying to do short media assessment test, get message saying: Please run LTO Drive Assessment Test.
Problem is I only just ran that test and it passed perfectly!!!
For some LTO tapes in a batch I just bought (used), I'm getting a warning message when I run an LTO Media Assessment Full Tape Test that says:
Maximum temperature limit has previously been exceeded
When I click the health button and look at the Cartridge Environment section it says:
Maximum temperature margin in last 3 drives: Great Margin
I'm seeing these two for all cartridges I've tested in this batch even though only some issue the Maximum temperature limit message.
1 How should I interpret what LTT is telling me here? and
2 Should I be concerned about using these cartridges? (Other than this and a Data on tape (average) warning, all seem to pass tests with "Great Margin".
After running a full media test I get the message:
Data on tape (average): Warning
What is this trying to tell me please?
A "Data Assessment Test" on the same tape says "Great Margin" ....
I want to make an encrypted backup

Is my tape reader broken..or is only a bad command error?
I have a client who has been using an Ultrium 2 448 SAS tape drive for a couple of years. Their backups have been running very slowly (Backup Exec 15, on Windows 2012R2) and they've asked me to look into this for them. When I look at the device, in Windows Device Manager, it is listed as "Other devices" "HP Ultrium 2-SCSI SCSI Sequential Device" and the "Driver Provider" is "Unknown". I have looked here: http://h20564.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/swd/public/readIndex?sp4ts.oid=3239083. However, there appears to be no drivers, for any of the Windows operating systems available, for download. Windows 2000 to 2008R2, including SBS 2011 and all the associated consumer variants of Windows, are listed. However, no Windows drivers are available, when you select any of these. It appears there is only a firmware update made available here!?
Can anybody shed any light on where I can find drivers for this device?

I got this error restart does not help.
17.03.30 14:40:53.72 Libctrl task Error - HE: internal SCSI cmd failed with check condition
This is the controller
is the LSI SAS 9212-4i4e model.
Had(i hope) a external mini sas port
I want to connect to hp ultrium lto5 external
This is the port of tape drive
Which cable i need to connect external port to tape reader?
I have a number of older C7978A cleaning cartridges which the packaging says can be used for Ultrium 1, 2 and 3 drives.
Can these in fact be used on later tape drives (Ultrium 4, 5, 6, 7)?.. If so what is the highest LTO-n format these can safely be used with and how many cleans are they good for?
I am not able to find driver for U320e SCSI Host Bus Adapter for Windows server 2008 R2, i am tired, can anyone please guide me. from where i can download this driver, we want to connect our Tap MSA Library 4048 using SCSI cable.
I recenty bought a new external ultrium 1760 since the old one we had broke down, leaving a tape inside.
Since i attached the new tapedrive, i haven't been able to create a backup that completed in time, or most importantly can rely on.
When i wanted to install the device, i received a cable that didn't fit with our setup. I receveid a SAS cable SFF-8088 to SFF-8644. where the SFF-8088 is on the side of the drive, and SFF-8644 would be on the server. I then bought a SFF-8088 to SFF-8088 cable, since i had multiple SFF-8088 slots free. Ever since, i didn't managed to get a decent performance out of it.
The server is a Proliant 385 G6(i know, not the newest) where i am running backup exec. but when testing the performance with HP L&TT there already is a warning:
I already updated all the drivers to 2016.10.0 without result;
Does anyone has some more advice for me trying to restore a backup capability with decent performance?
Thanks in advance, Kees
Hi one of my customers have a HP a7445b Storageworks ultrium 1760.
they have asked if it is possible to change the 2 scsi drives int he back on the unit to USB drives.
Hi currently i am using HP MSL G3 library And i have set ESKM encryption on it .
Encryption is set successfully on library but now i am not allowed to reboot libray, do move media operation etc from library RMI.
Note : when i was trying to connect with ESKM server from library--Configuration-->security the connectivity test got suck in between.
Questions to be answer:
Does MSL G3 support ESKM server for encryption or SafeNet server ?
How to regain library in such state ?
Have an issue trying to update the firmware (latest 1493) on our EML-Eseries Robotic controller where it crashes after about 10% "robotics failed to initiate flash" am i over looking something ? is this a hardware issue?
I have attached a screen dump if anyone has any advice
I am using tape drive with tape of 3TB of LTO-5. I want to use the compression mode 2:1.
Then will anybody tell me, what is the maximum size of data I'll store in 3TB tape after compression.
Thanks & Regards,
The Autoloader was showing as offline in BackupExec. When I checked the hardware, the mailslot had ejected and the Autloader was continually power cycling. When the mailslot when pushed in, it would simply eject again.
I managed to manually eject the left magazine and close the mailsot. At this point the Autoloader stayed online. As soon as I put the magazine back in, the Mailslot popped out again and the Autoloader power cycled continuously.
Any help to troubleshoot would be appreciated. This is out of warranty and if I need this repaired, I have no idea where to go.
