HP MSL G3 (2024) Tape Library

Hi, I have a HP MSL G3 (2024) tape library with LTO-3 tape drive.

Can this version support newer drive (LTO-5 or LTO-6)? Or do I need a new library too?

The MSL2024 supports from LTO-4 to LTO-7.

See the quickspec for supported drive models.

Update the firmware to the latest, then swap drives and tapes.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
