MSL6060 Tape Drive Question

We have a MSL 6060 (6 * LTO3 Drives) with 3 NSRs. I would like to upgrade the drives to LTO 5. Is it possible to do in this Unit?

I dont think that the MSL6060 can be upgraded to use LTO5 drives.
When i look in the quickspecs of the MSL6060 there is no mention of LTO5 Drives.


PS, copy paste everything between the "" in an internet explorer.

AFAIK the LTO4 drives are the latest and greatest for this model.

Hope this helps!

Thank you for your responses... I guess LTO 4 is as high as I can get on this one... I was hoping a firmware update would give me the capability of LTO5. Thank you for your time!
