Step 2. Choose Server
At the Server step of the wizard, choose a physical or virtual server to which the tape devices are connected and that you want to add as the tape server.
- From the Choose server list, select the server that you want to add as the tape server. As a tape server, you can use a Microsoft Windows or Linux server, physical or virtual, added to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure. For the tape server system requirements, see System Requirements.
- If the devices are connected to the Veeam backup server, select This server. The tape server role will be assigned to the backup server.
- If the devices are connected to a separate server, enter the server name. If the server is not added to Veeam Backup & Replication yet, you can click Add New to add a new Windows server or Linux server to the backup infrastructure. To learn how to add those servers to the backup infrastructure, see Adding Microsoft Windows Servers and Adding Linux Servers.
- In the Description field, provide a description for future reference.
