Does Backup Exec and Legato have version requirements to support physical partitioning on a Oracle/Sun SL500 tape library ?

    Hi,

    when I rembember correctly, there is an "partitioning firmware", and the feature must be enabled by an key (could make up to 8 partitions).

    When this is done, the partitiong is done on SCSI level, so, the library itself reports as two (3,4,...8) independent libraries, with their own drives and slots, all
    done on SCSI element level - so, every backup software which is library-ready should have no problem w/ that stuff.
