Attach a physical tape drive (SAS) to Hyper-V 2012 Virtual Machine
I will have Backup Exec 2012 running on a Windows 2008 R2 virtual machine which is hosted on a Windows 2012 R2 Hyper-V server and want to know if it is possible to connect a physical LTO5 tape drive / library to the Hyper-V server and make it available to the Backup Exec VM.
I have previously been advised that it is possible by a Symantec engineer but since read that this is not the case, or if it is, it isn't supported. Does anyone know how I can do this or get around the problem? If there are any 3rd party products which can help, then that could also possibly be an option (depending on security accreditation).
