Tape library and Virtual Fiber Channel Adapter


As we are using HP MSL G3 series as our backup device. My question here does it support virtual HBA? In other words can I use a client system installed on a hyper-v machine and running win server 2012 as a Media Agent?

Hello @Abdallah Abdulhafid,

Please check my response in the other discussion a few days ago. For Hyper-V you can the Hyper-V host as the Media Agent, but not the Hyper-V VM to access the tape library directly.
