BE 2010R3: Can I import media from HP Data Protector Express?
Hi all. Just covering my bases here. I have never tried importing media into BE from another backup software before. I have a client with an old and a new server. Old server has 2003 and HP Data Protector Express, backing up to LTO2 tapes. Upon purchasing the new server I ensured to put in a controller compatible with the older LTO2 drive in case that ever had to be connected to the new server. New server has an LTO5 drive on it.
I believe the LTO5 is read-compatible with LTO2 media but since I've already switched the scsi cable from the old server to the new, I thought I'd try to get this LTO2 drive showing in BE so I can try this Import Media feature.
Having never done this before, I am hoping somebody can advise on things to do or not to do.
The LTO2 dirvce is connected but not showign yet, my guess is I need to reboot the server to get this U320-attached drive to show, and probably somehow install drivers for it in BE too. Does that sound right?
