LTO and DAT72 support for Win 2K8 R2

Veeam Logoby nolme » Wed Jun 10, 2015 3:48 pm

Hi everybody.

I've just learned that Win 2K 8 R2 don't support tape anymore. :/
I have many LTO and don't want to buy hard drives for backup.

I've installed Endpoint Backup Free to do a test but it don't see my LTO.

(device are recognized on Windows Device manager).

Thanks,

Vincent

Hi, Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE does not support tape as a backup target - only disk-based targets are supported. Thanks!

And what about the paid version ?

Same conclusion for Backup & Recovery ?

Thanks,

If you need to offload backups taken from physical servers/desktops to tapes, then you need to target your Veeam Endpoint Backup job to Veeam B&R repository and then use backup to tape/file to tape jobs to send these files to your LTO media.

Moreover you can use Veeam Endpoint Backup in conjunction with Veeam Backup and Replication Free Edition: free edition’s file to tape job could pick the endpoint backup files

Hum, I've just installed this version. all tapes are recognized (Tape server is the same server) :).

We have a Qnap NAS and I found this article https://www.qnap.com/i/fr/business_solutions/con_show.php?op=showone&cid=17.
But what about the ability to backup NAS datas shared folders to the tape ? Is this possible ?

Thanks,
Vincent
