still no media type assignment to tape drives?

Post by cmaier » Mar 29, 2019 12:23 pm


We have a single MSL4048 library with four drives in it: two LTO-6 and two LTO-7 drives. And we use different media types of course: LTO-5 to LTO-7. I still can't find a way to tell the LTO-6 drives not to use LTO-7 medias nor the LTO-7 drives not to write LTO-5 medias. The (not so) beloved Backup Exec can do this since ages. I can assign bar code suffixes to media types there and media types to drives (read and/or write).

No, library partitioning is not an option.

Could you please add this to Veeam?
