HP Ultrium LTO-5 Tape Drive and HBA
Posted on 2014-12-09
Our windows host which was connected to the tape drive recently died, it was connected with an LSI Logic pci-x HBA 3Gb/s.
Library: MSL G3 Series
Drive: HP Ultrium 5-SCSI
The new host is a 2012 R2 Server and we'll need a new HBA.
Not sure which HBA to choose, there seem to be a lot to of them and can't really find anywhere on HP sites what types they are supporting except for their own.
Can we just buy any HBA with SAS that supports 2012 R2 and connect it to the tape ?
Anyone know of a card with PCI-E, 6GB/s SAS that's decent and works with HP Ultrium LTO-5 ?
