DPM 2012 R2 and IBM/Lenovo Tape RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello forum members,

    I have a question:

    Is the tape drive in the below configuration with "Microsoft Data Protection Manager 2012 R2" Compatible?
    The "System x3650 M5" Server is an external enclosure

    "1U Tape Drive Enclosure (87651UX)" now Lenovo "IBM Multimedia Backup Enclosure (61901UX)"

    with the tape drive

    "Half High LTO Ultrium Gen 6 Internal SAS (00D8924)" now Lenovo "6190 HH SAS Tape Drive LTO6 (00NV404)"

    connected with the server and corresponding SAS HBA.

    The hardware manufacturer can not answer my question.

    I have already searched the Internet and found nothing more or less to or on the side is only in the table of IBM - Standalone Drive LTO5 FH - listed, on the other hand, the tape drive is what I need - LTO6 HH SAS - listed only in conjunction with Tape Library as compatible.

    Maybe someone here has such or similar combination in action and answer me the question can.

    Sorry for my bad english. But can feel the question in German post.

    Many thanks in advance
