Backup to Tape hosted an a Win10 PC

Post by Jabi » Sep 05, 2019 7:35 am

Hello Everyone,

Is it possible to create a tape backup job on a remote machine ?
The Remote Machine is Windows 10 PC with a hba controller & an external tape drive.

Veeam Backup and Replication is hosted on a Server downstairs, and the Secondary Backup Job (Tape) should be sent to the tape upstairs on the Windows 10 pc.

Thanks for your help.

Hello Jabi,

Yes, you need to install a Tape Server component on this machine. Once done you can control the remotely connected tape drive via Veeam B&R and use it as a target for your tape jobs. Cheers!
