Due to the amount of size that is needed for GRT, I see requests for GRT to tape on a daily basis.  Is there any plan for this ?  Is it possible ?

If you read through documentation, you will understand that the disk storage is mounted on the client as Network File System (NFS) in order to browse for indvidual items.

It is simply impossible to NFS mount a tape.....

I believe during GRT duplication to tape GRT catalog is also transferred to Tape media for allowing GRT Direct restore from Tape. (Although duplication process takes time due to GRT catalog)

But Does this means NBU does not requests for NFS mounts while restoring from Tape media?
