Windows Server 2012 R2

Postby 1Tap » Fri Aug 02, 2019 9:01 pm


I am running a Windows Server 2012 R2 physically attached to HP Ultrium 3 Tape drive, I want to backup files on the tape through Windows 2003 installed on VMWare and hosted by the Windows 2012 R2.

I think Tape redirection should be installed on 2012 R2 (where tape is physically attached), and ISCSI initiator should configured on Windows 2003 where Backup software located.

I read the manuals but I am still confused where to install and configure Tape Redirection, and where to configure ISCSI initiator.

Thank you.

You are right, tape redirection should be installed on the machine where tape physically attached.
