I have installed the tape redirector and configured it with iSCSI for the tape drive and library. All looks OK

I have configured the iSCSI initiator on the client VM and connected OK

In device manager the tape drive shows but media changer was showing unknown. I have downloaded the drivers from DELL and installed. Looks to install OK but I get an error saying "Windows cannot initialize the device driver for this hardware (Code 37) Object name not found

Any advice would be appreciated

It seems like the driver should be reinstalled or OS is broken.
