It would work with SAN SSO, but not a SAS/SCSI tape drive/library.

In your case, I'd recommend loading a full version of BE 2012 on the server with the LTO tape drive. If the other servers are on a local site, then simply push-install the Remote Agent for Windows Servers to them and configure backups.

If the other servers are on remote sites, then you can consider backing up to disk on them, and using the Enterprise Server Option, duplicate those backups to the main media server using CASO, and then back them up to tape.
