Missing "Select a New Tape Changer" under Backup - Server Managem

Discussion in 'Windows Small Business Server' started by Michael in CA, May 23, 2007.

  1. I did a default installation of SBS 2003 R2 and noticed that there is no
    option for "Select a New Tape Changer" in the menu or when configuring a
    scheduled backup. All of the other menu options are there (Backup Now,
    etc...).

    Where could it have gone?

  2. Hello Michael,

    Thank you for posting here.

    According to your description, I understand that the "Select a New Tape
    Changer" was not available in Server Management\Backup. If I have
    misunderstood the problem, please don't hesitate to let me know.

    Based on my research, the link "Select a New Tape Changer" may not be
    present if the data of the registry value "Backup Location" is not set to
    1.

    I suggest we try the following steps to see if we can resolve this issue:

    1. Open Registry Editor,

    2. Locate the registry key:
    HKLM\Software\Microsoft\SmallBusinessServer\Backup,

    3. Check the registry value "Backup Location" in the right pane.

    4. If it's set to 2, double-click it and change the data to 1.

    5. Click Ok to finish.

    Then check if you can see the "Select a New Tape Changer" link in Server
    Management\Backup.

    Hope these steps will give you some help.

    Thanks and have a nice day!

    Best regards,

    Terence Liu(MSFT)
