Quantum DXi6701 with IBM 3575-TL
I have one BE 2012 server and target is Quantum OST storage DXi6701.
I use OST backup and have multiple LSU-s. Backup goes over IP network. No SAN connections beween BE media server, sources and target. All IP.
Now I connected IMB tape library 3575-TL directly to Quantum storage (using FC) and I see it on PTT tab and it's enabled.
How can I use it in BE? I would like to add "copy to tape" to my backup jobs.
Or I can create new job - copy full LSU to tapes. But how? BE does not show me tape drive,.
The PTT page allows you to configure the path to tape (PTT) feature of the DXi6000. There are two types of path to tape:
Backup application specific path to tape allows you to move data from the DXi to physical tape cartridges in an attached physical tape library using an NDMP (Network Data Management Protocol) connection. The DXi supports NDMP V4.
OST path to tape (also called Direct To Tape) allows you to use Symantec NetBackup to copy LSUs from a storage server on the DXi to a physical tape library.
So I have to use NDMP? How?
