Can 2 NB environment access the same tape library/drives and disk storage ?
I ask because I am in the process of building a new 7.5 environment, parallel to our existing 7.1 environment.
The 7.1 environment contains a shared/global master server, with our own local media servers (4). The local 7.1 media servers access a local IBM tape library and Data Domain 860
The new 7.5 environment will be completely local (1 master, 4 media servers). As part of my testing in this new environment, I want to be able to test backing up to the tape libraries and data domain.
So can the new 7.5 environment access the same tape libraries and data domain as the 7.1 environment, without effecting any of the backups in the 7.1 environments ?
