Hi there

Could you help us to get succesful install one library TS4500 over Windows Server 2019, we have installed onw library TS4500 shared with TSM / Veeam, there are 4 drives for TSM and 4 drives for Veeam, we are trying withut success install this library.

We did the next procedure, note that we do not have any experience installing.

1.- Create Veeam Virtual Library
2.- Zoning 4 drives TS4500 to the Veeam Tape server and viceversa
3.- Ran scan for hardware changes, it's discovered 6 medium changer (medium changer was zoning by WWN discover on AIX server), and 10 tapes drives
4.- Was installed the IBM Tape Drivers for Windows Server 2019
5.- Ran a scan for Veeam Tape Library

Did you assign the drives to the Veeam logical library on the TS4500?

If you zone them, they will be seen, but not useable.

you may have to reinstall drivers after.
