FC card suitable for LTO5 Ultrium 3280 8GB FC Drive

Hi,

I would like to attach LTO5 drive to my PC.
I read the following web page and realized that there is a card that does not match the LTO drive

https://community.hpe.com/t5/Tape-Backup-Small-and-Medium/Can-not-mount-LTFS/td-p/5894827?profile.language=en

How can I find FC card(PCI express) lists that can mount LTFS.

 

Thank you

bye

the issue in the other post is regarding a sas lto is it not, it may not like ltfs as its a raid controller with a cache battery.

but yours is a fiber drive so i would think a Qlogic 2560/2 would work fine but not 100%.

I doubt there is a standalone FC tape drive.

FC connections are IMHO only available for library drives.

However, find the compatibility table here

Hope this helps!
