encryption based backup/restore

Hi,

Is it possible to restore from HP SKM backedup tape to a library which is protected by Quantum encryption key manager (QEKM).

What would be the procedure to make it happen.

Please guide.

thanks.

Re: encryption based backup/restore

The tape would have to be in an HP library connected to the HP SKM to be read. You potentially could do a tape-to-tape copy with one tape in the HP SKM controlled library and the second in the QEKM library.

There are groups working on standards for interoperability but the current solutions are not interoperable.

Re: encryption based backup/restore

Hi,
Thanks for the much awaited reply.
Do you mean that only HP library will work with HP SKM ?
we have Quantum library with Q-EKM at restore site.
Source is HP library with HP SKM.
Is it possible to get temporarily HP SKM and its 1 time license for restore ?
regards.
