LTO4 and Veritas 10d or 11d

Hi All
Quick question which I cant find an answer for..
Does anyone know if Symantec Veritas 10d or 11d support LTO4 drives?
We will be taking delivery of a Dell LTO4 POwervault MLP 6010 and need to know if we will have issues.
Thanks

hey IPF, I realized I put in the link to the software HCL. Sorry about that, it does seem you have the answer for 11D.    I did check Symantec's site for version 10 and I can't find anything definitive.  I am looking through my local docs to see if a copy of the 10D.  I am going into a meeting so I won't know for about an hour.

I believe the short answer is yes, I have LTO 4 libraries running on 11D for certain.  I can't speak to powervault specifically but here is the link to the HCL from Symantec BE 11.  I can't find my 10D to know for sure.

I hope that helps

Hi A2
thanks for the prompt reply. I had already managed to speak to Dell who confirmed what you said RE 11d. I need to confirm 10d however and Symantecs website is rubbish. I have spent ages on the phone trying to get them to send me their HCL as it is impossible to dwonload from it (see link below)

IPF, I don't have the docs local either.  I did open a case with Symantec and their official position is it isn't supported in 10d.  With that said, if ntbackup sees the drive it will work with BE.
