it took me a week to get this tape libary running so I thought I would share it here:
Spectrelogic t50e + VEEAM + 2x IBM LTO 4 drives+ Windows server 2012 64bit
What you need:
VEEAM reg key:
from here http://www-933.ibm.com/support/fixcentral/
Medium Changer Driver: (yes Spectrelogic says do not install it, I say you need it )
http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/ ... 154ad9f089
Do it in this exact order, otherwise it will not work.
Install IBM Tape driver:
simply unzip IBMTape.x64_w08_6252.zip
rightclick on "non_exclusive.exe" make it compatibility windows 7 and run as admin!
double click non_exclusive.exe!
Device Manager sould now report one
"IBM Ultrium-HH6 SCSI Sequential Drive"
and one "LTO Tape Drive"
This is correct!
Install Libary driver:
download driver from Microsoft: (you can try using Windows update, but that always failed me )
you get a "AMD64_X86-en-20246909_9247eb5143a0785f0d027d80d1e0de3c36cab2b1.cab" file
unpack it using 7zip.
Go to device Manger update driver and look for "unknown media changer" -> choose update driver -> select folder of extracted AMD64_X86-en-20246909_9247eb5143a0785f0d027d80d1e0de3c36cab2b1.cab file
Should now report "Spectrelogic Media Changer"
do NOT use native scsi commands on "Spectre Pyton 2000 libary"
apply the regkey described in
because the Drives and the Changer were recognized as 3 separate things.
I used "Changer0=Tape0,Tape1" because I have 2 drives.
