I need to use ver. 11 on a Win 2003 enterprise srv. x64 with two "HP StorageWorks MSL5000" library connected to two server SCSI port. The server have 4 disks: 2xRAID1 [C:,D:] + 2xRAID1 [E:].
Can ver. 11 backup on the two MSL5000 with 2 concurrent jobs? I need that a job read from a disk (C: and D:) and the other job from another disk (E:).
Another question: if I use NetBackup, to backup some server via network, I must substitute "backup exec 11", on the server with two MSL5000, which NetBackup server, or "backup exec 11" could be used as a netBackup server?
You will need one license for BE per box you intend to run it on. I had four tape drives and now three tape drives running on BE 10D and 11D with no issues. Make sure you have SCSI disconnect enabled on the SCSI controller. Make sure you SCSI controller is on a separate bus from the SCSI RAID or hard drive controller for best performance.
Exabyte VXA-320 (12 Mbps)
Exabyte VXA-2 (6 MBps)
HP DAT 40i (3 Mbps)
Each channel can handle 320 Mbps. I get full tape performance from all drives running concurrently. When I had the second VXA-320 on channel B. I was getting 2.2 GB / min concurrent backup speed from all four drives.
