Tape redirector and Server 2016

Hi,
Is the Starwind tape redirector supported on Windows Server 2016? I only see reference to 2012R2 in the documentation.

Regards,

Hi,

We are having issues with StarWinds - Tape re-director. DPM server restarts after 15 minutes of tape operation (Can see tape library responding to requests)
All Drivers / Firmware have been upgraded.

StarWinds installed on MS Server 2016 DC hyper-V host, with Dell TL2000, with 2 LTO6 drives connected via SAS.
VM created for Server 2012 / DPM 2016

When Dell exclusive driver installed, StartWinds unable to detect Tapelibrary in Add device (Advanced)
If Dell non_exclusive driver used, StartWinds able to detect Tapelibrary in Add device (Advanced)
- iSCSI initiator configured on DPM server, when tape operations occur, we can see Tape library responding to requests. DPM server will abend after ~15 minutes of tape operation

Tried using SPTD driver (v2.10 part of installer)to resolve DPM server crashing. Both Dell non_exclusive / exclusive drivers attempted. StartWinds unable to detect Tapelibrary with either driver in Add device (Advanced).

Issue persists using StarWind Virtaul SAN 8.0 11404.
