Backup exec 2012 Tape library

hi ,

old config (server with FC module + tape library with FC module)
new config (server without FC module + tape library with FC module)


i have this big problem, i have installed my BE 2012 in my new server and when i tryed to cable it with FC module to my tape library ,i didn't find a slot for this type of connection in my new server .

should i take an sso licence and give to my tape library an IP address and access to it from my LAN ?
thanks

Hi,   No...if you don't have

Hi,

 

No...if you don't have an FC HBA in your server, you've got no way of accessing the tape library. The NIC on a tape library is solely for management purposes...ie, logging onto the web front-end. It cannot be used to backup across the network.

You either need to purchase a riser card for the backup server, or use the old server instead. This is a physical problem, not a BE problem.

 

Thanks!
