DP autoconfigure

When I try to autoconfigure devices,it lists the Robotics and drives but doesnt tie them together...I know this is a known issue and so did a

net start "Removable Storage"
net stop "Removable Storage"

but to no avail.Rebooted the server,disbaled robotics from windows server,but nothing seems to work.It still lists
the MSL robotics separate and then the 4 drives.What am I missing here?

Using windows server 2003-64 bit,DP 6.1 patched

Re: DP autoconfigure

If you remove a device from msWindows (which you do with 'net start "..."') then you donnot remove the device from DP! In the past, we had a situation where the device needed to be removed from msWindows. DP found the scsi-bus in msWindows and used its own (tape/library)-drivers to manage the equipment.

If you need to remove a device from DP, you need to do so in DP. see C:\Program Files\OmniBack\Docs\MAN\CLIReference.pdf for your local commandline manual.

Re: DP autoconfigure

One addition for auto configure... DP stores the devices serial number. With that it can traverse multiple paths to the same device.

However, if you replace a device, the serial number needs to be reloaded for auto-configuration of the new device. Otherwise the stored serial number prevents the automatic configuration and other usage...
