The following limitations exist for tape as a SAN Client storage destination:
You cannot multiplex different SAN clients to the same tape. Different clients can still be backed up to the same FT media server, but they are written to different tape drives in different MPX groups.
SAN Client does not support Inline Tape Copy over Fibre Transport; Inline Tape Copy jobs occur over the LAN. The SAN Client features is designed for very high speed backup and restore operations. Therefore, SAN Client excludes backup options (such as Inline Tape Copy) that require more resources to process and manage.
