D2D 2504i G1 (EJ002A) + StorageWorks LTO-4 Ultrium 1840 (EH854A)

Hello Everybody,

this is my first post on this forum.
First of all sorry for my English.
I need some help :-)

We have a StorageWorks D2D 2504i G1 (EJ002A) used by Symantec Backup Exec 2012 for the backup jobs.
Can i attach a StorageWorks LTO-4 Ultrium 1840 SCSI external tape drive (EH854A) for extras backup jobs, such as a monthly full backup?
Anyone use a configuration like this?
Is there any known problem with this configuration?

Thanks to all

this applianc e acts like a large tape library for backups to use. since this is a g1 model you can attach a tape dribe or library for tape offload but that is done by the d2d itself

Thanks for reply.
So the physical tape it's not visible by Symantec Backup Exec but it can be managed only through the D2D.

 

Can I manually duplicate a virtual tape on a physical one?

 

Thanks.

Backup Exec doesn't knows what is physical or what is virtual. What is the size of the Virtual Tapes defined? Is it smaller or similar to LTO4?

The virtual tapes size is 800 GB like an LTO4.
