Installing HP Storageworks DAT 40 SCSI Internal drive?

by b.groves / February 15, 2007 1:16 PM PST

Cant install HP Storageworks DAT 40 SCSI Internal drive.
I can't get Windows 2000 Server to see the drive. I have a Dell PowerEdge 1300. The SCSI Controller is a Adaptec 2940U2W. What I have done:
1. Removed a broke DDS 3 drive (SCSI ID 6).
2. Installed HP DAT 40 drive (set SCSI ID 11).
3. Reboot.
4. Ran HP DATTapeDriverInstaller.exe to install drivers
5. Reboot.
6. Ran HP Storageworks Library and Tape Tools.

Neither Windows or HP Storageworks Library and Tape Tools can see the drive.

If I run the Adaptec SCSI Configure utility on Boot I see:
SCSI ID 3 Ricoh Scanner
SCSI ID 11 HP C5683A

Any install ideas to correct this missing tape drive?

Does the 2940 see it?

I recall from memory pressing control+A during boot to enter the SCSI controller card's setup menu. Beside configuring the card I also would scan for devices there.

This is not an offer to teach SCSI configurations. But do make sure the card sees it and that you installed the 2940 drivers for your OS first.

(NT) I'd try using SCSI ID 6
