Switching robotic library hardware

Level 3
I just wanted to know if there is anything to consider and/or take note of when changing the main robotic library.

We currently are using a Quantum SuperLoader DLT with robotic Libraries. The version of backup exec we are using only has support for ONE robotic library. We are purchasing a LTO3 drive with a robotic library.

We want to ensure a smooth transition; making sure we can still access the drive from the DLT and use the new LTO drive and library.

Feedback much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Are you talking about accessing the DLT drive directly and operating it manually, while physically leaving it in the old library, and using the new Library and LTO drive as a Robot?

All I can think of is Remove the library from within BackupExec (not device manager) before you do anything else, leaving the DLT defined, then add your new hardware and re-boot, then edit/create jobs to access the new hardware.

Your question is correct. thank you for that advise
