Hello folks, veeam b&R 9.5 SP2 the tape drive is not present (tape library discovery runs, but did not show the drive) System: Windows Server 2016 Drive: Tandberg Data LTO-3 Drive vie Adaptec AHA 2940UW PSC SCSI Controller

The general question: Is that drive not supported by veeam? The inofficial list did not dislay that drive for now.
The environment is for testing purposes only thats why i had added an old drive (the production environment has LTO-6 drives and veeam working fine with that).
