TL2000 - NDMP support - Logical Parition
I got a TL2000 with 2x FC Tape Drives - LT06 that will be connected to VNX Data Mover.
Found this note on the NDMP section of HCL.
NDMP only supports libraries (real or virtual). Stand-alone tape drives are not supported when using Direct-attach or Remote NDMP Connection methods.
1. When I partition my TL2000 to two (2) logical tape libraries will I still be able execute NDMP backups - Direct attach ?
---> Will Symantec see the Logical Tape Libraries as Tape Libraries even if each logical tape library has one tape drive only ?
2. Will NDMP backups be possible with a Tape Library with a single tape drive only ?
3. I found this note also:
The tape drive drivers are supplied by the NDMP platform vendor when using Direct-attach or Remote NDMP Connection methods.
Since, I have an EMC Data Mover, I guess I will need to check with EMC if the Data Movers support TL2000 - LT06 tape drives.
Has anyone tried recently doing direct attach backups on EMC Data Movers via NDMP using a Tape Library with LT06 FC drives?
