Need Backup Exec server to support tape loader in VM 2008 R2 OS or Windows Server 2012 physical machine.
I am sure this question has been asked many times before but was wondering if there is an update yet!!!
I have a multi tape changer "quantum scalar i40" and I need this to work with Backup Exec 2012. I have one physical machine that runs server 2012 R2 and the rest of the machines are mixed 2008 R2 and 2012 R2, virtualised in vmware esxi 5.1 hosts.
I know I can install backup exec 2012 on a virtual machine (server 2008 R2) but the tape loader shows as a single tape and I don't get to see all the slots. Is there a way to make this work so it shows all the tape slots?? (this would be my preferred method.)
Alternatively, is it possible to install backup exec 2012 on a physical Server 2012 R2?? If not, is there a expected date when this would be supported. Server 2012 has been out for two years now and it’s very disappointing that Symantec still does not support this L
