    ESX 4.1 Tape Drive - No communication with BE 2010

    adamboote Novice

      Hello

       

      I am trying to get a tape drive that we have to work

       

      We have a Dell T710 Server with an LTO-5 tape drive connected to a H200 SCSI card

       

      The tape drive shows up in the VM Client under configuration as

       

      Name -      IBM Serial Attached SCSI Tape (naa.500507631208a3ea) 

      Identifier -  naa.500507631208a3ea

      Runtime -  vmhba1:C0:T0:L0

      LUN -        0

      Type -       Tape

      Transport - Block Adapter

       

      When adding the device to the VM under edit settings I am unsure what SCSI ID to select under Virtual Device Node

       

      I have tried a few and I can get the tape drive to be shown up in the installation of Windows Server 2008 R2

       

      The problem I am having is with Backup Exec 2010

       

      I can inventory and label a tape but I cant backup any data to it

       

      Any help is much appreciated
