Everything about backing up to tape

Support for non LTO

Veeam Logoby MP230 » Fri Mar 20, 2015 1:30 pm

Hi,

to start with the good point i am a very happy veeam customer and really like the product. Currently we backup to disk and want do add tape as a second backup destination. We have several IBM TS3500 with 10+ drives each. We started to get the libraries working with veeam, all seemed fine except some Tape operations would throw strange error messages even when just inventoring the tapes. Opened Case #00819600, after checking everything, problem is: we have IBM 3592-E07 Jaguar drives all the way... so no LTO. They work partially but thats all.

Since you can imagine that we would like to use the existing hardware (it´s not really the cheap stuff), is there any way to get non LTO drives to work with Veeam?

Regards

Marcel, only LTO3 or later tape libraries and drives are supported.

Hi,

since there will be some enhancements regarding Tape support in v9, any chance on IBM Jaguar Tape drive support? :)

Hi MP230,
Unfortunately, no changes: we still stick to the LTO.
