I have just been implementing AWS for our company, got tired of manually renaming tapes so thought i would look at trying the Storagetek driver instead of using the Sony driver which AWS recommend. Worked perfectly first time with no issues that I can see thus far.
Thanks to Meyercord and Geofftx for the information provided in the current post and below from another post: tape-f29/amazon-aws-vtl-gateway-t19737.html

Easiest way I found to get the driver is to go to http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/Home.aspx
and then search for "storagetek". In the search results you'll see "StorageTek - Storage - Sun/StorageTek Library". The 19K one is the 64-bit version. That was the closest thing I could find, and Device Manager reports the changer as a Sun device "working properly" once the driver is installed. "
I followed the instructions to find and download the drivers, installed them on to our server 2012 R2 Veeam server, updated the drivers and then ran an inventory on the tape library. It redetected the tapes with all the correct barcodes. I then added 10 tapes from the AWS storage gateway and ran 'Import Tapes' on the medium changer which picked up the 10 new tapes, all with the right barcodes.
Renaming the tapes manually was starting to drive us a bit crazy. This is an easy workaround until there is an official Veeam / AWS fix.
