SAS passthrough from host to guest

Respected Contributor

SAS passthrough from host to guest

I'm trying to make a backup solution on ESXi. I have one server with SAS tape drive and backup server is installed on guest machine in ESX on this server. Is there a possibility to "show" the tape drive of this server to guest?

Re: SAS passthrough from host to guest

The solution is vmdirectpath but i'm not absolutely sure that it will work in my configuration...
Anyway, problem solved, at least partially.
