Does latest version of Veeam support the following library - IBM TS3500 Tape library with LTO6 drives? Anyone tried such combination? Thanks.

We don't provide any official compatibility list, because, as long as, the correct drivers (OEM drivers from device manufacturer) are used and given library/drive is shown properly in Windows Device Manager under correct name (as opposed to generic device), it should work smoothly with Veeam Backup and Replication. Your device seems to be on our unofficial compatibility list. Thanks.

Just a quick note - we are using IBM TS family library at our QA department and it works like a charm.
