I've got BE 2010 R3 and a TL2000 connected to a SAS controller in our backup server. In BE goto Tools, Wizards, Tape Device Configuration Wizard. This will allow you to install the drivers - we used the top option, Use Symantec tape drivers for all supported tape drives. Run through the wizard and it should find your drive and install the drivers.
I've split the slots up into partitions in BE to allow me to target certain jobs and certain slots (slots 1-4 run the daily differential backups, 5-9 run the weekley full backups and 12-16 run the monthly full backups)

got it up and running. Thanks. Seems the SAS cables were not plugged in correctly.
But now backup exec is bitching it isn't licensed for tape library.
We already have backup exec and all the licenses for the servers etc, how much am I looking at to add on support for the tape library?

I think the stanard license includes 1 drive and since the TL2000 only has 1 drive I never had to explore additional licensing. If you look here Enterprise Support - Symantec Corp. - Symantec Backup Exec (TM) 2010 Licensing Guide that is the license document.
It looks like for more than 1 drive you need a Library Expansion Option license. No idea how much that costs.

$1000 up front and then $200 a year after that.
Guess that will have to do..

Dell has simplified the backup process by offering the only integrated hardware, software and services solution powered by Symantec Backup Exec. The PowerVault DL2100 comes factory-installed with Symantec Backup Exec software and a unique wizard driven set up and management utility. The backup software comes with integrated automated dynamic disk provisioning that configures and sets up the disks for immediate use. Set it up, configure storage, add more disks —it only takes a few clicks.
