I am using Backup Exec for NetWare 9.1 to backup files on NetWare 6.5 SP7 server. I need to replace the tape drive and prefer to get LTO-4 drive. However, I cannot get the confirmation from Backup Exec if they will support LTO-4 drive unless I pay for the support case. The latest compatibility list from Symantec does not have support for LTO-4 drive yet but they do support LTO-3.

Anyway, I have 2 questions:

1. Has anyone able to use Backup Exec for NetWare and backup to LTO-4 drive?

2. I like Backup Exec for NetWare because it is server based and I can administrate the backup schedule from the console. This is a remote server so accessing the console is way easier and faster when I have to troubleshoot the backup process. If I have to get a new backup program that will backup to LTO-4 and supporting NetWare platform, anyone has good suggestion?

Thanks in advance.
