Notes:
  • Beginning with version 8.1.20, IBM Spectrum Protect™ is now IBM Storage Protect™. To learn more about the brand change, see IBM Spectrum Protect brand change to IBM Storage Protect.
  • Tape Library configurations for base model and with 15 expansion modules:
    • 3 Half-Height (HH) LTO drives or 1 Full-Height (FH) LTO drive per base module
    • 48 HH LTO drives or 16 FH LTO drives per full stack
    • Up to 40 slots per base module, 640 slots per full stack
    • Up to 5 mailslots per base module, 80 mailslots per full stack
  • Barcodes are required.
  • Eight character barcodes are required. The last 2 characters must be the media identifier "L#" where # is the tape cartridge generation. For example, ABC456L8 for an LTO-8 cartridge. Without a proper barcode label, a volume will appear as "unknown media".
  • ELEMent=AUTODetect in the DEFINE/UPDATE DRIVE command is supported.
  • BDT MultiStor is supported by IBM Spectrum Protect Sever version 8.1.4 or later.
  • Support for IBM Ultrium 7 support requires IBM Spectrum Protect Server 7.1.3 or later
  • Support for IBM Ultrium 8 support requires IBM Spectrum Protect Server 8.1.4 or later
  • Support for IBM Ultrium 9 support requires IBM Spectrum Protect Server 8.1.14.100 or later
  • Mixed generation LTO (drive & media) is supported.
