HP StorageWorks 1/8 Autoloader

We have a HP autoloader model no:AF203-63001.

Can anyone tell me if this model has the hardware capability to export a tape to the mail slot once a job has completed. I have not been able to achieve this using Veritas BackupExec 10.

With a 1/8 model autoloader there is a coursel.

Back Up exec does not support export/import on coursel autoloaders... which means moving tapes to and from the storage slot

You CAN load/unload with back up exec... which meand to and from the drive (from the storage slot)

Apparently Back Up Exec was designed to use the import/export on libraries/autolaoders with a robot shuttle assembly and as far as I know a crousel autoloader was never intended to support thwi import.export feature with back up exec.

import/export will need to be done from teh front panel of the library

Wow that was a terrible typo post... let's try again shall we?

With a 1/8 model autoloader there is a carousel.

Back Up exec does not support export/import on carousel autoloaders... which means moving tapes to and from the storage slot

You CAN load/unload with back up exec... which means to and from the drive (from the storage slot)

Apparently Back Up Exec was designed to use the import/export on libraries/autoloaders with a robot shuttle assembly and as far as I know a carousel autoloader was never intended to support this import/export feature with back up exec.

Import/export will need to be done from the front panel of the library.
