How can I use a tap backup drive within a virtual machine hosted in XeServer 5.5?
Posted on 2010-01-11
We currently have Citrix XenServer 5.5 hosting a Windows Server 2008 Virtual Machine, which contains all our files, and would like to implement a classic tape backup solution.
We are using Symantec Backup Exec 12.5 for the backup software and a Dell Power Vault LTO-4-120 tape backup system.
Although the controller card shows up in the menu settings of the XenServer host, it does not show up within the Windows Virtual Machine.
Can someone help me out with the steps for getting the tape backup device to be recognized with the Virtual Machine?
