DP9.04 - Query on Drive based encryption

Hi Team,

We are using DP 9.04 , HP MSL library having LTO6 drives. Backup tapes are going to offsite. Tapes are of HP Model.

At DR site, We have IBM tape library having LTO 6 tape drive.  (compatible with DP 9.04 & HP tapes)

Now Customer is asking to enable encryption on backup tapes (in case any tape gets misplace during trasport and should not be read by any third party). 

Question :

-> If I enable drive based encryption (Drive-> setting-> advanced->drive based encryption),  would I be able to read the tapes on IBM tape library?

-> What is the method of reading the encrypted tapes at DR site (IDB tape and data tape). Kindly help to provide steps for decryption .

thnx
