Tape Library Partitioning?

Veeam Logoby regnak2012 » Tue Nov 05, 2013 11:25 am

Hi,

I'm looking at a site that has a HP Tape Library currently used by a 3rd party backup product. They are talking about partitioning the Library between it and Veeam. Is anyone doing this or could I run into problems?

Thanks

Hi, Mike,

As long as the partitioning is made via native tape vendor tool, not, via a third-party one, and the corresponding devices are correctly shown in Windows Device Manager, the VB&R should work without any issues.

Thanks.
