Hello Nicolas

Yes, it is possible to have IBM LTO3 and HP LTO3 drives on the same server. It is important to know which backup program and operating system you are using before picking the correct driver. IBM and HP media should also both be compatible with LTO3 drives.

Hope this helps

Yes it works fine.

You need the good driver, on the hardwarpath.

TSM, seems to work ok, with the different drives.

Thanks a lot for your answer
