Hi guys:  I know that SAS is downward compatible with SATA.  Does anyone know if I will be able to use my Quantum DLT-V4 SATA drive with the SAS controller in my server?  I will be using Backup Exec for the software if that matters.

Thanks for any input/experiences with this configuration!

I actually have this exact setup at one of my client sites running Backup Exec 11D.  Works fine.  Just make sure that you use the Backup Exec drivers for the tape instead of the Windows drivers.

If the windows device manager sees the drive Backup Exec should not have any issues with the tape drive.

Symantec has not tested the drive with the above mentioned interface.
So  if  you have any issues with the BE working with the tape drive once its detected in the DEVICE MANAGE try using the OEM drivers (QUANTUM)
