    I'm not 100% sure, but I would have thought that you can install the latest Device Mappings file - and I say that because I've never heard of any reason - i.e. hardware reason, or operating system reason, why the application (NetBackup) cannot have its Device Mappings file updated.  This is after all the purpose of the file - to allow customers to catch up with the latest device support without necessarily having to upgrade NetBackup... however, one potential fly in the ointment is... is the HP device listed as supported for your version of NetBackup.  I can see the B6200 listed as a member of family 6000 Series:

    NetBackup HCL link:  Go to Top of "HP"

    ...which still says that Accelerator is not supported for 6000 Series.  Maybe the documentation guys just haven't gotten round to updating the HCL  document yet.
