Overland ArcVault RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    For DPM2007 Overland ArcVault was supported. My question is this. If a TapeLibrary is supported in DPM 2007 can I presume that it will work in DPM 2010.

  • Hey Robert,

    Here you can find the list of supported tape libraries for DPM 2010:

    http://www.microsoft.com/systemcenter/en/us/data-protection-manager/dpm-tape-libraries.aspx

    But, according to some of our tests... Every tape libarary that was supported by DPM 2007 is also supported in DPM 2010, although you need to play a bit with the drivers from time to time :-(

    Hope it helps,

    Cheers,

    Mike Resseler

  • Hi,

     

    Yes, The guidance we're giving customers is if the library is listed on the Windows hardware compatibility catalog, then it should work fine with DPM 2007 and DPM 2010.

    As Mike Resseler pointed out the challenge sometimes is finding the x64 drivers that work properly on Windows 2008.
