KMS Supported Tape Drives with Netbackup

Hi,

We are planning to implement KMS on Netbackup 7.6.1.1, As per Encryption and Security guide.

 

The KMS manages symmetric cryptography keys for the tape drives that conform to the T10 standard (LTO4).KMS is used with the tape hardware that has a built-in hardware encryption capability. An example of a tape drive that has built-in encryption is the IBM ULTRIUM TD4 cartridge drive.

KMS is also used with disk volumes associated with NetBackup AdvancedDisk storage solutions. KMS runs with Cloud storage providers.

 

 

Can we used LTO 5 and LTO 6 drives for KMS ? 

How we can configure KMS for AdvanceDisk storage ?
