Pages 214-215 seem to indicate LTO5's require 6.5.6 or later

and

NetBackup 7.x Hardware

I saw that as per the hardware compactibility it will work. I wanted to know that any one has done this and what was the result.

If its there in compatibility list it has been tested and it should work as expected , if its not working then you may log support case for the issue.
