DLT Drive

Ok, quick simple question - I'm relatively new to the Compaq tape drives. I have a Compaq 3000 that I just got a rack kit for - it has a DLT 15/30 tape drive in it, but if I mount the 3000 in a rack the tape path will go from Horizontal to Vertical. Is this going to create a problem for the drive?

See, told you this was a simple question.

Re: DLT Drive

no problem with that, all the dlt in libraries are Vertical mounted.
