Re: DDS4 & LTO1

It's not a question if the drive is supported by OS, the question is, what kind of server and where is the tape connected.

Several SCSI HBAs in different servers are driven by different drivers. Old servers won't be able to work with DDS4 or LTO.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: DDS4 & LTO1

DDS4 and LTO are LVD SCSI devices. There are no such interfaces for your K-Class server available. Only single ended SE and HVD controllers. In theory, the drive will work with SE. But the SE adapters are working with tape2 driver, which cannot work with the drives.

The only way to make them work is to use a third party HVD to LVD converter, connect the server to the HVD port and the drive to the LVD port (unsopported, of course, but should work).

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
