EML Library

Hi,

Is it possible to have a mix of Tape Drives (e.g LTO-3 and LTO-5) in an EML Tape Library?

(Not media cartridges but tape drives)

Any documentation on this?

thanks

Re: EML Library

Hello Francis,

sure you can mix drives. Take a look into the quickspecs:

"Extending the E-Series flexibility and investment protection, the HP StorageWorks EML E-Series tape libraries support mixing drive technology (LTO-5 Ultrium 3280 FC, LTO-4 Ultrium 1840 FC, and LTO-3 Ultrium 960 FC). One drive type can be specified for CTO and the other drive types must be field
installed."

Regards,
Patrick
