HP Storageworks Virtual Autoloader not detecting tapes

I have just purchased a HP Storageworks D2D backup system. Within this you can create virtual tape drives or virtual autoloaders. I have created a virtual tape drive and completed backups and restores successfully. I have created a virtual 8 slot Autoloader which is detected by backup exec but when I go to inventory the device it does not detect any tapes.

 

Any ideas?

 

Backup exec 11d 6235 SP3

Windows server 2003 R2 SP1

I' having the same problem too. I haven't found a resolution yet. I'm using Backup Exec 11d 11.0 Rev. 7170 with Windows Server 2003 SP1.

I was not able to get it to work until I upgraded to Backup Exec 12 and installed the latest HP Storageworks updates on the HP Storageworks machine.
