Tape Library with virtual Backup Exec Server

Hi there,

We're about to buy an HPE Autoloader G2 / LTO 6 drive and a P440/AR SAS Controller to export our B.E. 16 backups to tape.

The Backup Exec server is running  on a VM (ESXi 6.5)

Do you know if the drive and the library will be recognized by the VM with DirectPathIO ?

Thanks

Re: Tape Library with virtual Backup Exec Server

Unfortunately, your proposed configuration is not supported by either BE or VMware.  You need to use a physical server.
