Setting up a backup testing environment

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I am trying to setup a disaster recovery testing environment using a HyperV host managed by MS SCVMM.  The host has a SAS LTO4 tape drive attached to it.  

Is it possible to pass a SAS tape drive from the host to a virtual machine so I can test restoring backups from tape using Symantec Backup Exec?  I have been unsuccessful in getting anything like that to work.
