Everything about backing up to tape

Backup VM from vSphere directly to tape

Hello Veeam community

Im pretty new to Veeam and have to configure our backup server.
Is it possible to backup the vm's directly to tape? I have read, that it might be neseccary to back them up on a HD. Is this true?
Do I have to configure a backup repository for the tape libary or is it enough to add the tape server?
(Somehow the Tapes are not recognized, but it might be backup Exec which runns in background)

Unfortunately the Veeam did not help a lot.
Thank yor for your help
Kind regards

Hi Manuel, right, you cannot backup directly to tape, you need to backup to disk first and then use either backup to tape or file to tape jobs. Please review the corresponding user guide section for a better idea of how Veeam B&R works with tapes. Third-party drivers indeed might be the culprit of issues.
