Smart HBA H241 Change the block size for tape backup

Hi,

i use a H241 controller with a connected Library. The Backupsoftware is VEEM. The controller is built into a dl380 Gen9. The controller is in a ESXi 6.7 and connected in a Windows Server2016 via Passthrough. The Backup is working. But the Block size is set to 64K. Is there a way to change the Block size to 512K?

Thanks
Markus

Hello Markus,

 

The HBA H241 does not offer any acceleration or support cache modules.

If you have a SAS library and your SAS controller run with 0 memory, a blocksize greater 64K will not be possible.
For block sizes larger than 64KB you need to have cached version of HBA.
