Backup Exec and HP StoreEver Tape Library

I have Backup Exec 2012 doing full backups onto an HP StoreEasy NAS (Win2012 Storage Server). I want to add one more stage and make a duplicate backup from the NAS onto an HP StoreEver DTL. I connected the Tape Drive to the NAS (via SAS) so that data goes from the NAS directly to the Tape without having to go through the Backup Exec server. So far so good. Alas... I cannot figure out how to make Backup Exec "see" the Tape Drive. Does the DTL have to be connected directly to the Backup Exec server? Isn't there a way to detect it via an agent on the Storage Server? Thanks.

Hi,

I have never been able to find a way to make a DTL work with Backup Exec without connecting it to the backup server.  There may be a way, but i've tried also without success.  If I were you I'd send a message to HP Tech Support.  But I'm not optimistic.

Good Luck,

Actually it *is* possible by using Network Data Management Protocol (NDMP). This requires (a) a NAS that supports this protocol (b) a license for the feature in BackupExec.
