Master and Media server on Virtual Machine using RDM

 Hello All,

I would like to ask if there is any way I can create a new Virtual Server for my Netbackup Master/Media server. I need to connect SL500 Tape library to that VM server. Is there anyway to work on this requirement. Can we have Virtual HBA to connect the tape library and zone them via SAN switch using Raw Device Mapping.

Any inputs will be appreciated.

Regards

Kishore

Tape is not supported on VMware.

You need a physical media server for library/tape support. 

Please see: Statement of Support for NetBackup 7.x and 8.x in a Virtual Environment:    http://www.veritas.com/docs/000006177

You will see in Table 4 that VMmare and/or Hyper-V are not supported for Media Manager storage units.
