5. Available drives
    Tivoli Storage Manager also supports StorageLibrary libraries with other types or other generations of LTO drives that are supported by Tivoli Storage Manager. Users should confirm with Tandberg that those drives are supported with StorageLibrary libraries. For a list of LTO drives supported by Tivoli Storage Manager, see Supported Devices for AIX, HP-UX, Solaris and Windows and Supported Devices for Linux.

Library and drive may require different minimum Tivoli Storage Manager levels. Therefore, ensure that both library and drive hardware are supported. See "Supported Devices for AIX, HP-UX, Solaris and Windows" or "Supported Devices for Linux" for minimum supported version levels and platforms for these devices.

More information regarding device configuration is available in the Tivoli Storage Manager Administrator's Guide, which can be found in the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager information center.
