Latest iteration: wipe whole server, install windows 2012 R2 Server, install IBM tape drivers version 50 in non exclusive mode for windows 2012. Install Veeam 8 + latest patch. Add tapeserver and this is the result. Remove the tapeserver, reboot machine, add tapeserver - same result. The machine is physical IBM box, the library is directly connected to the machine. No other machine should be able to see the tape library. IBM diagnostic tools can find the library and operate it. But Veeam does not find the library and gives the error above.
The same physical server was previously build for Backup Exec which happily used the library, so we naively assumed that we would have no problems converting it for Veeam and getting finally rid off BE completely.
There is an open support case with ID: Case # 00742420
Any ideas? I'm getting desperate as our policy requires storing certain things to tape for longer storage and disk storage is soon going to start losing things (retention) that should have already been "moved" to tape.
