Upgrade question Hardware

Hi,

 

We want to upgrade to BE 15 and we have a Dell PowerVault 124T  Library.

I did go throuw the hardware SCL of BE 15 I can see LTO-5 FH But not LTO-5 Ultrium

is this means our library is not compatible with BE 15?

This is the property of my drive:

Re: Upgrade question Hardware

Ultrium is the type of drive, don't worry about that. It is supported. FH = Full Height in the PowerVault chassis.

Thanks!

Re: Upgrade question Hardware

CraigV is correct -  but to give more info -  if you can open the ADAMM log on your server you can find the inquiry strings and compare these with the HCL (yes HCL, not SCL) to give a more accurate identification

Re: Upgrade question Hardware

The HCL seems to show thatt is OK the drive is listed on it's own and in a PV124T (against SAS connectivity, I am not 100% sure but I think SCSI might be seen in the ADAMM log even if the physical connection is SAS)
