Re: Install new drive for MSL2024

Hi,

I was wondering whether I could also install a Fujitsu LTO drive in my MSL2024 or whether it will only accept HP drives. It is my understanding these drives are more or less identical and manufactured by the same company and then branded one way or the other. But of course, different firmware might interfere...

Thanks!

You are posting a different question on an old thread - it would be best to create a new thread as most users won't see this.

It is very unlikely that a Fujitsu branded drive will work in an MSL 2024.  There are firmware/configuration differences and library/drive interface differences in different drives.  Tape libraries are typically programmed to validate that installed drives are the correct configuration.
