Tape Drive Inactive(greyed) in SQL Server management studio while backup


Dear All,

I was trying to schedule backup of my Production Server but when i checked in MS SQL Studio, the Tape option is in inactive, how can i active the Tape.

I followed the SAP note - 1115746 ..but problem is still the same.

I want to know one thing in sap note 1115746 it is written that Add in the same branch as the DeviceType entry a new string value (REG_SZ) with the name "Type" and the content "TapePeripheral":Type = TapePeripheral

When i am rebooting the server this entry automatically got deleted(no entry with this name in the registry)

Please help !
