This hotfix corrects the problem of NTBackup incorrectly choosing the backup tape type on a drive that supports multiple tape types.

  • This hotfix corrects the problem of NTBackup incorrectly choosing the backup tape type on a drive that supports multiple tape types.

    When a backup starts, it immediately fails with the error “The requested media failed to mount. The operation was aborted”, even if the tape is in the tape drive. Some tape drives support tapes with different block sizes. Windows Small Business Server 2003 backup chooses the first tape type available, which may not correspond to the tape type of the tape in the drive.

    This problem is most commonly seen with the Travan 20 tape drive. Windows Small Business Server 2003 backup chooses the MiniQIC tape type instead of the Travan Tape type.
