Pinned topic TS2260 H6S not formatting LTFS LTO-5 in Windows 7 x64

‏2014-01-21T19:37:50Z |
Hi, I hope someone can Help me; I'm new to the LTO world, i recently purchased a TS2260 HS6 drive and a IBM 6gb SAS HBA PCI card to connect it to my HP z800 workstation. 
I was really excited about the posibilities that LTFS offered. I installed the software, Windows recognizes both the pci card an the tape drive, LTFS configurator loads the drive and assigns it a letter correctly, I insert an LTO5 tape and the the icon for not formatted media appears. So I right click the icon an press format. Then nothing happens, no error message, nothing . It doesn't format the media, so i can't use it. I can't eject the drive from the computer either.
I'm completly stuck here and need Help, desperatly. 
Thank's in advance.
Victor

    Hi, Victor.

    Can you right-click on tape icon, and display the properties?   You will see the software version and also you can see the internal error logs.

      Thanks for your reply Ishimoto

      Actually when I click properties I get the standar properties of any hard drive in Windows 7.

      There might be a problem with the install, but I have already re-installed it 3 times. Could I be missing a Step?

      This is what I did;

      I install the IBM PCI card,

      Connected the Tape Drive, (SAS and AC)

      Updated the Firmware throug TEST TOOL

      Ran A test: All passed (incluiding LTFS compatibility test)

      Installled LTFS as administrator.

      Restarted the computer.

      Launched LTFS administrator and assigned a letter to drive.

      Drive appears on windows explorer.

      Mounted Tape on drive, and tape appears unformatted on explorer.

      Right click tape icon on explorer, and nothing happens. :/

      I hope  you can give me some pointers I´m utterly lost here, I even ordered a diferent SAS PCI adapter, an LSI 9200 8e

       

      Best regards.

        1) If you followed the installation instruction at the following URL,  you probably installed 3 software; 2 from Microsoft and LTFS from IBM.

        http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/ltfs/cust/topic/com.ibm.storage.hollywood.doc/ltfs_installing_win.html

        Can you list up the software versions of those?  

        For LTFS, you can identify the version by the file name of installer, or by the location you get the LTFS (either IBM FixCentral web or CD-ROM comes with TS2260.

        2) You can find the error logs at C:\Program Files\IBM\LTFS\log directory.  Open the LogFile.csv with your spreadsheet software or text editor.

          I did install the Visual C ++ 2010 and  Microsoft .NET framework 4.

          My version of LTFS is 1.3.2.4101, format version 2.2.0

          I searched for the log file and extracted a fragment I considered relevant;

            ‏2014-02-04T00:30:53Z  in response to VictorVelazquez

            Hello I'm Atsushi Abe, development lead of LTFS SDE and LE.

             

            I can't find any format action in the log you attached. It just said ..

            • The cartridge is not formatted by LTFS
            • Multiple configuration panel is launched a few times

            I'm wondering you got a standard properties for drive. It shall be customized by LTFS and you should got a property of LTFS cartridge.

            You shall have the menu like attached picture by right click after LTFS recognizes unformatted tape.

            If you have the property item in the bottom of right click menu, LTFS will disappear. If so, could put a log file (LogFile.csv) as attachment because I don't know your previous attached logs contains everything or not.
