How can I get Veeam and EMC networker on same backup server

Veeam Logoby mc7 » Sat Feb 06, 2016 12:15 pm

We have a single backup server with both Veeam and Networker on it.
A fibre channel tape library with 2 tape drives is connected to this server and currently being used by EMC networker only.
Veeam is only doing backups to hard disk.
But I want to use 1 tape drive with Veeam and 1 tape drive with EMC Networker.
I have a concern that if I configure multiple jobs in Veeam then it might end up using both the tape drives thus stopping the Networker from using the tape drive or vice versa.

Is there a way if I can make only drive in the library usable by each technology?

To make this work, the library should support hardware partitioning.

Just out of curiosity - what's EMC networker used for? Thanks.
