MSL6052 dlt tape to lto tape

I have an msl 6052 with dlt type tape cartiages but i would like to upgrade hardware to support the bigger LTO tape cartiages. How and where would i find upgrade information about this type of migration ?

Re: MSL6052 dlt tape to lto tape

The upgrade you want to make is supported. See:

You'll need to get the required number of the upgrade drive units (P/N AD612B, and two of the dual LTO magazines (P/N AD621A). If your SAN support 4 GB you may also want to consider upgrading the embedded storage router to 4 GB (P/N AD577A - one per two drives).
