MSL 6030 Windows Server 2008 x64 driver

I am in desparate need of a Windows Server 2008 x64 driver for an HP MSL6030 Tape library. Currenlty the library shows up in device manager as an unknow library. This will not work for Microsoft's DPM backup software. I know this is a rebranded Overland library but I am unable to find the driver from them. I am confused as to why HP has not released a driver for this particular configuration. Thanks.

No driver for Windows 2008 X86-64 there (I suppose it's where he has already looked). Use this instead:

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/storageworks/tape/smartcomp/hpstorageworkstapedrivers.zip

HP StorageWorks Tape Drivers
This utility will automatically install the SCSI, SAS and USB drivers for HP StorageWorks Ultrium and DAT tape drives, tape autoloaders, and tape libraries for systems running Microsoft Windows 2000 Server, Microsoft Windows Server 2003, Microsoft Windows Server 2008, Microsoft Windows XP, and Microsoft Windows Vista.

Anyway, drivers are not needed for most backups programs. In fact most recommend to disable the devices in Windows.

DPM will not work without the correct driver. We finally got ahold of an HP engineer and found out the driver is in development and should be released in a month or two.
