Hi,
I am unable to restore TSM database after migration of OS from Windows 2008 R2 x64 to Windows 2012 as media after getting mounted to drive getting dismounted and giving error as attached. I later discovered that LTO4 tape library (HP MSL2024 SAS attached) is having Native drivers and tried to update the same but showing "yellow" exclamatory mark on same.

Kindly guide and backups are stuck.

Hi Marclant,

If you have yellow exclamation then drivers are not communicating with OS properly. Try to uninstall driver from command line. Reboot system and reinstall older driver. Looks like new drivers are not compatible with drives. What kind of tape drive it is LTOX. Also install TSM Device driver.
