But since it is not supported by Backup Exec, If error encountered,Symantec Technical Support will not assist you to troubleshoot and fix the said problem.

Re: Any Hardware (Tape Drive,

I have netbackup 7.6 + firestreaming 4 running together with no problems.

Regardless the Inventory has worked has no impact on Backup Exec's ability to support the device. There is no driver support for the VTL's changer or it's virtual tape drives. There are no plans at this point in time to support this device.
