One Library two Tape Server

Post by Treeeman » May 04, 2018 9:11 am

Hello,

i will deploy two Tape Servers (one in each DataCenter) for Redundancy.
FC TapeLibrary is in a third DataCenter.

I know Backup Exec have such kind of Feature where multible Backup Servers can access the same Library at the same time without problems because they "talk" with each other.

Is it possible with Veeam to present this TapeLibrary both Tape Servers at the same time without having any issues?
Or should i present the FC Library to one Tape Server 1 and change the presentation to Tape Server 2 if Server 1 failes?

Thanks and KR
Marco

No, tape device should be connected to only one tape server.
present the FC Library to one Tape Server 1 and change the presentation to Tape Server 2 if Server 1 failes?
That should work.
