HPE StoreEver MSL2024 FC

Post by Husamh » May 10, 2017 7:24 am

Good Day,

We have a customer he already has a the below 1 x HPE StoreEver MSL2024 FC Tape library, he want to implement new VMware vSphere 6.5 Standard edition as HA on 8 x HPE BL460c Gen9 with 1 x HPE 3PAR StoreServ 8200, 2 x HPE SN3000B 16Gb 24-port/12-port Active Fibre Channel Switch and 1 x HPE StoreOnce 5100 48 TB System.

He also has 1 x HPE DL360 Gen9 server which will run ESXi 6.5 on it, he asked us if he can configure a Windows Server 2012 R2 or Windows Server 2016 as Virtual Machine on it and configure the Veeam Backup and Replication 9.x and configure zoning between SAN Switch’s FC & HPE 3PAR & the MSL2024 FC and the 1 x HPE DL360 Gen9 server?

Thanking you in advanced,

Husam Ahmad

Hi Husam,

Most likely this scenario will work, but, please keep in mind, that we do not support the tape to vm pass-through scenarios. I’d recommend to use a Tape proxy between Veeam B&R and Tape device outside the VM infrastructure instead.
