I currently have a new Hyper -V guest server (Windows 2008 - 64 bit). I am able to install our tape drives and Medium Changer Devices on the host Hyper-V host server but not able to get them in Device Manager on the guest server. I was able to install the drivers but the drives not not come up when I do a new hardware scan.
How can I get the drives to show up on the Hyper V guest servers to I can back them up?

Actually we have a HP MSL 6000 Media Changer and I cannot install it on any DP clients, not just VM's. So I guess I am just asking how to setup the drives on a DP client so I can back it up?

that means that teh server doen't see the drive, actually the problem is not DP, are you sure the server see the library,
Do you see the library from Device Manager?

No I do not see the drives in Device Manager.
I am not sure I mention this but the server is a Hyper-V guest. The Hyper-v host does see the drives.
