I opened a case with support asking them how can I verify in the logs that encryption is being used on my tapes that are going off site? CASE # 02217903
I need to know what encryption method is being used on tapes, I need to prove its hardware/software, and specific method of encryption. I also would like a simple confirmation procedure for the tapes themselves.
To confirm encryption is being used, Support asked me to build a new VBR server, move my tape drive, load a tape and catalog the tape to see if Veeam asks for a password (Key).
I do not see this as a viable option, at least not a repeatable one for our yearly Audits.
I did locate in the logs a line where it mentions Encryption for the tape media pool.
Can anyone tell me what encryption type 3 is ?
How can I tell that software encryption is working since my tape drive doesn't support (lack of license key) the hardware encryption piece?
