    ESX 4.1 Tape Drive - No communication with BE 2010

    adamboote Novice



      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
