Working with Tape Libraries

All tape libraries managed by Veeam Backup & Replication are shown as a list of devices under the Libraries node in the Tape Infrastructure view. All connected devices are discovered automatically during the rescan procedure. When you add a new tape device to the tape server, it appears in your console after rescan.

To view properties of a tape library, open the Tape Infrastructure view, expand the Libraries node and select the needed library. Click Properties on the ribbon. You can also right-click the necessary library in the working area and select Properties.

Select the Perform drive cleaning automatically check box if you want Veeam Backup & Replication to manage the tape drives cleaning. For more information about automated drives cleaning, see Automated Drive Cleaning.

Select the Use native SCSI commands instead of Windows driver check box if your library is an unknown media changer. For more information about unknown media changers, see Supported Devices and Configuration.
