Configuration Information for IBM TS7510 Vitualization Engine
IBM TS7510 Vitualization Engine can emulate tape libraries, tape drives, and tape media. IBM Tivoli Storage Manager supports the following emulation mode.
- IBM LTO-2, IBM LTO-3, and IBM 3592 J1A (Generation 1) drive emulation with IBM 3584 library emulation.
- See Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Matrix for more information on supported configuration.
- See IBM TS7510 Virtualization Engine for more information.
- See Introducing the IBM Virtualization Engine TS7510: Tape Virtualization for Open Systems Servers for TSM usage considerations.
Library and drive may require different minimum Tivoli Storage Manager Server 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.
