Backup SBS 2008 to LTO-3 Ultrium tape SCSI device
Posted on 2009-02-18
we purchased new server to run SBS 2008 PREMIUM on it and everything is perfect, except backup. SBS does not see IBM Ultrium-3 SCSI tape device to be used for backup - only local disks are valid backup devices.
Additionally, I read FAQ on Microsoft web page:

QUESTION: Are tape backup devices supported in Windows Small Business Server 2008?
ANSWER: Windows Server 2008, the underlying technology for Windows Small Business Server 2008, does not support for tape backup devices. If you require support for tape backup, contact your tape drive manufacturer for information about hardware and software compatibility with Windows Server 2008.

Anybody any suggestion on how to configure backup without buying new hardware or additional backup software?
