    I have a VTL with 32 drives. On one one of my media agents it is unable to detect 10 of the drives.  My other media agents see all 32 drives.  When running detection it receives this error on the 10 drives "cannot detect drive scsi adapaters have been added to or removed from the host, or drives are not being detected properly".  Any ideas how to correct this?  Is there a tool that needs to be run to solve this?

    On the device manager for the MA, is it seeing all of the drives, or just those 10?

    Yes the device manager on the media agent sees all drives.

    Hi CGS 

    There should be a Library_##.log on the MediaAgent that would show more details on why Tape Drive are not being detected. 

    If you can share the logs, we can see what is preventing the detection
