Attaching devices to a Windows system
The following procedure describes a general method for attaching devices to a Windows computer. The Microsoft Windows device applications available on the server that you use in these steps may differ depending on your Windows operating system.
To attach devices to a Windows system
- Use the appropriate Windows application to obtain information on any currently attached SCSI devices.
- If you attach a new robotic library or drive to a NetBackup media server, follow the vendor's instructions for attaching the device.
Shut down the server and physically attach the supported device. Ensure that SCSI targets and termination settings are consistent with adapter card and peripheral vendor recommendations.
- Reboot the server and answer the prompts for adapter card peripheral configuration options. Watch the display to ensure that the adapter card recognizes the attached peripherals.
- If you add drives, install the tape drivers and use the appropriate Windows application to verify that the drive was recognized.
