Everything about backing up to tape

Different LTO drives

Veeam Logoby rpetrov1981 » Thu Jul 27, 2017 5:59 am

Hi!
I have a tape library IBM 3573 with two LTO5 drives installed. It is connected directly to my physical VEEAM bR server . There are two empty slots for drives in the library. I want to purchase another two drives LTO7 with a set of LTO7 tapes. My question is: will I be able to perform several jobs to LTO5, but another jobs perform to LTO7 drives and tapes correspondingly? As far as I am concern I cannot "tie" a specific drive to specific media pool.
Your help will be very appreciated

Unless you tape library supports partitioning, that would not be possible. Thanks.

The 3573 does support partitioning, so you should be able to accomplish this.
