Backup to tape drive on another server.

Created: 07 May 2008 • Updated: 21 May 2010 | 2 comments
I have 2 Windows 2003 servers that have BE12 installed. Only one server has a tape drive.
I would like to know if it is possible to access the tape drive from BE on the server without the drive? I would like to be able to reference the tape drive from jobs defined on the server without the drive. Not sure if this is possible.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, Neal...

Sorry, No
BackupExec can only communicate with a drive directly connected to the media server or on a SAN

Thanks for the clarification Ken, I suspected that was the case but thought I would ask.
Cheers, Neal...
