Compatibility between SDLT drives (urgent!)
Posted on 2007-03-22
At present, we have a couple of different file servers that use different backup media/devices. We have now moved to a SAN that is backed up using Netbackup, but we still may need to restore the odd file from the old file servers.
The tape units on these old servers were;
Instead of keeping these old servers alive in case we need a restore, we're planning to build a consolidated backup server that can restore any of these media. Given compatibility between the different types of media, I assume there's no need to build a server with each of the different tape units (especially given that the media has to be readonly).
I've checked on the HP site, and there doesn't appear to anything clear.
Does anyone have an idea about one type of SDLT drive to use? Obviously the Ultrium drive we'll have to be there.
Urgent, so max points!
