Server 2016 and Tape Library Drivers

Veeam Logoby DaveWatkins » Mon Nov 14, 2016 12:58 am

Has anyone installed Server 2016 on their server hosting their tape library?

I'm trying to plan the upgrade process for 9.5 and Server 2016 and in the case of both my tape libraries they are connected to my primary repo servers which is where I most want 2016 for the ReFS improvements.

In my case we've got Dell tape libraries but neither Dell nor IBM (which is what the Dell libraries are) have 2016 drivers.

Does anyone know if the 2012R2 drivers will work?

I'd rather not find out after upgrading to 2016 but I don't have any other option at the moment without looking at taking an endpoint backup first.

I think this sort of questions would be better answered by tape device manufacturer, as only they will be able to confirm whether new OS is compatible with their devices. Thanks.
