Sharing Tape Infrastructure

Veeam Logoby AntonJVR » Wed Jun 28, 2017 9:56 pm

We have a customer that uses an HP Library with 2x FC attached tape drives. One tape drive is Zoned to HP Data Protector for remote site backups to tape, the other to Veeam for major Data Center backups. The Data Protector was there first. When adding the Library to Veeam, Veeam sees the Tape Drive and all bays, but all bays and tapes are seen as Unrecogised. I reckon it it because HP DP locked the library for use with DP only. Is there any way to let HPDP and Veeam share the same Library of tapes, etc? Thanks.

Does your library supports partitioning? If so, split the device into two logical libraries and provide each solution (VB&R, HP DataProtector) with its own one. Thanks.
