Hyper-V with LTO-4

Veeam Logoby nekron » Fri Apr 17, 2015 1:34 pm

Hi ...

is it possible to run a backup to a LTO drive direct in the Hyper-V Host (connected to an local controller) ? How to install such a Backup method ? B&R installed on Hyper-V (Core) isn't possible right ?

So how to access the LTO-Drive ?

Best regards,

You mean to backup VMs directly to tapes, bypassing backup repository?

Correct.

But how to access the Tape drive (what kind of software have i to install on the hyper-v host where the tape drive is connected to ?)

Connect the device to the said host, install proper drivers (OEM ones from device manufacturer), make sure it's correctly reflected in Windows Device Manager and install tape server role on that host. After that, you will be able to utilize VB&R tape functionality.

Thanks.

Speaking about Veeam part of story, you should assign tape server role on the given server and create corresponding jobs afterwards. That's all.
