About the Device Configuration Wizard

The Device Configuration Wizard displays dialog boxes to guide you through setting up your robotic library.

The dialog boxes include the following:

Make sure that each device in the robotic library is properly associated with the robotic library.

Make sure that the drives in the robotic library appear in the Device Configuration Wizard under the robotic library in the order matching their drive element address. The drive with the lowest drive element address should appear at the top of the list.

If a robotic library storage device appears in the list as a stand-alone device, make sure the SCSI addresses of the robotic library and the storage device are configured properly.


During startup, if the storage devices in the robotic library contain media, Backup Exec attempts to return the media to its original magazine slot. If the media cannot be returned to the slot, you are prompted to eject the media from the storage device.
