Support for Oracle/STK VSM7 Tape Drives 


Does VM:Backup support Oracle VSM7 Tape Drives ?


Yes, support for Oracle VSM7 Tape Drives was added to VM:Backup r3.6 with PTF RO96741.

Additional Information:

This enhancement adds support to VM:Backup for Oracle/STK VSM7 model tape drives. Oracle/STK VSM7 model tape drives operate with VM:Backup as "IBM 3490E" tape drives. Therefore you should use the MEDIA and DENSITY information found in the "IBM 3490E, Oracle StorageTek 4490 and 9490 Drives"  section under "Managing Tape and DASD Resources" in the VM:Backup System Programmers Reference.
