The server is running vmware esxi 4.0 and the vm I am running is on a Microsoft Windows 2003r2 sp2 with exchange 2003 and I would like to backup this server using dataprotector express 4.0 u1. I have loaded hpl&tt and the server detects the tape as ultrium 1-scsi. However when I try to backup it seems like it takes forever to recognize the media which is a 200gb ultrium 2 tape and has never worked. Any advice on how to sort this out will be appreciated. Thanks. Have attached the L&tt tape logs.

I would suspect a issue with the cable or terminator

I had also updated the esx server to the latest patch release which is now u2 and firmwares on the tape was checked and was found to be the latest.
