  1. SONY SDX-700V and Netware 5.1 SP7 with BE 9.0 (Latest Build)


    hi out there,
    i am having trouble to get the sony sdx-700v running with be 9.0.
    the compatibility chart lists until sony sdx-700c but i cant believe that
    this drive isnt supported.
    i also changed the use of becdm and nwaspi but the result is the same:
    bestart reports 1050 - The device driver load was unsuccessful.
    thanks in advance for your help !

    Well, in general, if it's not listed, it's not supported. When BE starts
    up, it queries the SCSI bus for devices and compares the SCSI inquiry
    string returned to an internal listing to load the appropriate driver -
    so even a small variation on the model type can cause the driver not to
    load. However, it seems that there's a workaround for your model, sSee

    hi michael,
    thanks for the reply and the tip.
    i git this tip yesterday from a very kind support contact from sony europe.
    the dip switches 1-4 on the sdx-700v must be set to on.
    if doing so, the tape goes into the compatibilty mode and sends out the inquiry
    strin 700c which is listed in the be database.
    now the 700v is recogniced after deleting the mm directory under bckupexec
    directory.
    nevertheless i dont know why the folks at veritas support the 700v in the
    microsft version auf backupexec and not in the netware version..,
    the 450v and 500v drives are listed.

    thanks again to you and sony europe.
