Re: Unable to access the Firestreamer Storage Controller.

From your response it appears that the server has been running for a while. If so, it's even more likely it's run out of kernel memory. Check the paged and non-paged pool usage, overall and per process (you need to add relevant columns on the Details tab of Task Manager and sort by clicking the colu...

Re: Unable to access the Firestreamer Storage Controller.

The Install License option won't be available if Firestreamer Snap-In is unable to communicate with the driver.

The error indicates that your system is out of memory. Have you checked the memory status in Task Manager? What does it show? Have you rebooted your server recently?

Re: Automation script using network storage rather than removable media

The script seems to unload all the media and then locks the door, but it then just sits here after it locks the door. It never runs the rest, any suggestions? What do you expect the sample script to do (what do you mean by "the rest")? Have you modified the script in any way? Please note that the s...

Re: Automation script using network storage rather than removable media

The provided automation script is just an example. In your own script, you can do whatever you want. You seem to ask whether you can alternate different sets of virtual tapes located in different folders on the same network share. Yes, you can. You can also load media map files from any location. A ...

Re: Device not ready

You can try and create a diagnostic log file, though as I pointed out earlier, it is going to be a pointless exercise. We won't be able to resolve compatibility issues without the backup software vendors' participation.

Re: Device not ready

The other issue may be that the backup software does not issue periodic TEST UNIT READY or similar commands to check the drive status, while Firestreamer relies on those commands to report its state. After loading tape into the tape drive, try starting a backup 3-4 times in a row, to see whether the...

Re: Device not ready

Most backup software has a hard-coded list of tape libraries/drives. The result is that to support a new library/drive the backup software vendor needs to release a new version of their product. Yosemite doesn't seem to be an exception. If you loaded tape into a slot, then most likely Yosemite canno...
