SAN Client tape storage limitations

The following limitations exist for tape as a SAN Client storage destination:

  • Only FT backups from the same client are multiplexed in a particular MPX group.

  • FT backups from different clients are not multiplexed together in the same MPX group.

  • 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.

  • FT and LAN backups (from the same client or different clients) are not multiplexed together in the same MPX group.

  • 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.
