I'm just getting started with Tape backup in Veeam, and need some advice.
I've got a standalone Quantum LTO5 tape drive connected via SAS to a machine that's now got the Veeam Transport and Tape Proxy installed.
When I look in Tape Infrastruture I can see this server.
In Libraries, I can see the Quantum Ultrium 5 drive that's been called Tape0.
However, when I put a tape into the drive, it doesn't show. The drive always says "Empty".
I've got the latest drive firmware, and the latest drivers from Quantum. I can see details about the loaded tape via the tape driver properties in Windows Device Manager.
The tapes I have were previously used by Backup Exec - is that a problem? Do I need to erase them somehow before Veeam B&R will see them? I was rather hoping B&R would let me erase them. Maybe the problem is something else entirely?
Thanks for any advice or suggestions
