whether IBM TS3310 FC LT05 tape libraries is compatible with DPM 2010. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    My company has tape libaries IBM TS3310 FC LT05. Now, I would like to install DPM 2010. I wonder if DPM can connect with and manage this tape libraries before implementing DPM. I also check athttp://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/systemcenter/dm/cc678583.aspx. However, it is not clear in supporting new TS 3310 modern. Does anyone has experienced in this? please help me.

    Thank you

  • The guidance we're giving customers is if the tape library or standalone tape drive is listed on the Windows server catalog under the hardware / storage section and shows compatible with Windows 2008 X64, then it should work fine with DPM 2010.

    FYI - DPM 2010 now supports the IBM System Storage TS2900 Tape Autoloader after installing this DPM 2010 or later Hotfix.

    However, you must also add this registry key before that fix will be implemented.

    Registry Key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Microsoft Data Protection Manager\Agent
    DWORD: RSMCompatMode
    Value: 29 (Decimal)
