Configuring partitions on Windows media servers for robotic library sharing

Before you configure Windows media servers for robotic library sharing, you must ensure that there is currently no backup activity.

No fibre activity or backup jobs should be run until you configure all media servers for robotic library sharing.

To configure partitions on Windows media servers for robotic library sharing

  1. At the Windows server where the SAN Shared Storage Option is installed, start the Backup Exec Administration Console .

  2. On the navigation bar, click Devices.

    The tree pane contains a list of any fibre-attached or locally-attached devices.

  3. Select the robotic library you want to share.

  4. Under Robotic Library Tasks in the task pane, select Configure partitions.

    See Configure Partitions options.

  5. Set up your partitions.

    See About robotic library partitions.

  6. From the Devices tree pane, select the drive in this partition that will not be used by your Backup Exec media servers.

  7. Delete the drive to ensure no jobs run to the unused partition.

  8. Repeat steps 6 and 7 for all drives in the unused partition.

  9. Restart all other Windows servers and make sure you can see the shared robotic library on each server.
