We recently bought a couple of LTO5 drives and have them working perfectly with BE2010. Only issue is that for some reason BE detects the drives as if they cannot do Hardware Encryption.
I am sure the drives are capable fo hardware encryption as their LTO4 predecessors were too.
Any ideas as of to why this is happening?
BE is fully patched, Device is in the HCL with T10 support, I am using Symantec drivers only, and no it is not a robotic library. Its a Quantum LTO5 HH SAS 1U rackmount.
And there is no "Enable Encryption" box in the device properties.
Attached a couple of screens.
The QUANTUM ULTRIUM-HH5 is NOT on the BE 2010 HCL. You need to upgrade to BE 2012 with patches (or higher) to get support for that drive. You need to make sure that the inquiry string matches on the HCL as there are many variations.
The BE 2012 HCL states
I would speculate that your predecessors were QUANTUM^ULTRIUM^4 drives, which are on the BE 2010 HCL.
