Tape LTO5 and LTO6 can run same time in the same library

Hello Guys,

I am using Backup Exec 16 and library is HP Enterprise.

Previously I was using LTO5 tapes, but now I am trying to using LTO5 and LTO6 tapes simultaneously.

After putting both the tape in library. I run the inventory it’s completed 91% and then stuck. I got all the LTO5 tapes but I am not getting LT06 tape.

I checked the LTP6 tape details media capacity and media description is not coming. Is this possible to run both the tape in same library.

Need urgent help. Thanks in advance.

What is the tape drive that you have in your tape library, LTO5 or LTO6 or both?

Now both. Previsouly I was using only LTO5 tapes. This is the first time I am using both the tape in the library.
