Will Veritas Backup exec work with HP ultrium 920 tape drive

Dear Symantec expert, Will Veritas Backup exec version 10 work with HP ultrium 920 tape drive? We currently using Veritas backup exec version 9.1 and we just purchased Hp ultrium 920 external tape drive and when we check on the compatible list for verssion 9.1, our Ultrium 920 is not in the list? So will Veritas backup exec version 10 work for our newly purchased tape drive?  Thanks in advance...we are looking into upgrading from version 9.1 to 10 or any newer version.

Hello

I'm not a Symantec expert, what I can say, we use Ultrium (LTO) 920i SAS and it works.

We take our Backup with Backup Exec Version 10.1d 5629.

Hi HPzech, thanks fo for the info. Sadly we purchased HP Ultrium 920 SCSI external tape drive. We currently using backup exec v9.1 and the backup only work once in awhile. My manager is hoping if we purchased backup exec version 12x it will work with our Newly purchased tape drive (external SCSI).

The HP StorageWorks Ultrium 920 is on the HCL for Backup Exec 12.5, so if you upgrade, it absolutely should work fine:
