Backup Exec 2012 - Netapp and NDMP to i80

Created: 19 Sep 2012 | 1 comment

I have an Quantum i80 with 3 Tape Drives all fiber attached. I attached the i80 directly to the netapp via one of the drives. I can see the drive in Backup Exec but not the library. Do I need to go through a fiber channel switch to expose the library functions? Would there be a way to backup with Directly attached tape library?

I belive that if you want to see and controll the library then you need to connect via FC. Depending on the hardware you should be able to backup from a NAS to a tape drive connected directly to the NAS. You will need the Enterprise Server Option to allow this in your environment as you are using a FC tape unit.
