Backup Exec 21 – 21.X Hardware and Cloud Storage Compatibility List (HCL)

Introduction

This Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) document contains information for all editions of Backup Exec 21. All hardware must be present on this HCL for support, unless a section clearly states that the devices listed are not the only devices supported (such as the Disk Target section). If your tape drive, tape library, or virtual tape library is not properly detected, please update your system using the latest Update (previously called a Feature Pack) before calling Support. Updating the drivers frequently resolves device related issues. This update can be found on our support site. https://www.veritas.com/support/en_US/15047.html Please see these links for information about how and where to obtain updates https://www.veritas.com/content/support/en_US/article.100019916 and https://www.veritas.com/support/en_US/article.100041552

Backup Exec support policy is that all of the vendors involved (both hardware and software) must support all the pieces involved. For example, the Host Bus Adapter must be supported by the hardware vendor and the operating system vendor in order for Veritas to provide support. Always consult the hardware manufacturer’s support list and the operating system vendor’s support list when troubleshooting or planning a data protection installation. All entries were believed to be fully supported by all parties involved when they were added to this Veritas list, but if a vendor drops their support after this list was published, Veritas support will be on a reasonable-effort basis.

Hardware is selected and prioritized for certification based on market research and input from the field, including customer feedback. If a customer would like to have their hardware considered for inclusion on this HCL, simply submit the request via an email mailto:Backup_Exec_HCL@veritas.com . Requests will be reviewed by the appropriate Veritas Product Management team members for possible certification, with final decisions based on the overall fit with the product, target market, and frequency of request.

Some notes about drivers: Veritas Kernel-mode Tape drivers and tapeinst.exe are no longer installed if Backup Exec 21 is installed on Windows Server 2012 or later. There are no devices on this Backup Exec 21 Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) that require Veritas Kernel-mode drivers. USB tape devices still require a Microsoft or vendor Kernel-mode driver, in addition to the Veritas User-mode driver. Users of very old, unsupported, tape devices should investigate and test before using Windows Server 2012 or later to determine the functionality as kernel-mode drivers may be required. All supported tape devices are now accessed by Veritas User-mode drivers. Most tape devices have been accessed by User-mode drivers for multiple previous versions of Backup Exec.

User-mode drivers are not visible in the Windows Device Manager. When no Kernel-mode drivers are installed, the Windows Device Manager may show the tape drive with a yellow exclamation mark. This is acceptable and does NOT prevent the device from being used with Backup Exec and the User-mode drivers. Kernel-mode drivers from Microsoft or the tape hardware vendor are generally acceptable to be installed. Backup Exec will continue to access the tape devices via User-mode drivers.

Tapeinst.exe is the program that installs Veritas Kernel-mode tape class drivers. When using Windows Server 2008 R2 or earlier, tapeinst.exe can be invoked manually or via the “Install Tape Device Drivers” wizard (under the “Configure Storage” menu). When using Windows Server 2012 or later, the ability to run the “Install Tape Device Drivers” wizard (under the Configure Storage menu) is no longer present and is not needed.

Some notes about tape drive block sizes: Please be sure to consult this technote when using tape drive block sizes above the 64KB default size. https://www.veritas.com/content/support/en_US/article.100019307

Alternative Configurations: Our Licensed Software is designed to interoperate with many types of systems, applications, and hardware. Sometimes a customer may choose to use our Licensed Software in an “Alternative Configuration”, namely, an environment that has not been validated, approved or verified to operate with our Licensed Software or which does not support such Licensed Software or only supports limited functionality. In most cases, we do not support Alternative Configurations, and we have no obligation to provide Support Services to Licensed Software in an Alternative Configuration. Veritas makes no warranty with respect to use of Licensed Software in an Alternative Configuration and any such use is at your own risk. A “Supported Configuration” might be converted into an Alternative Configuration where a vendor modifies one of its components that is part of the original Supported Configuration. As a consequence, your Licensed Software would then be operating in an Alternative Configuration. If you experience a problem with the Licensed Software in an Alternative Configuration or if your issue deals with script that was not developed by Veritas or an authorized consulting partner, then we may ask you to reproduce the problem in a Supported Configuration environment. Please note we have no obligation to attempt to resolve problems that cannot be replicated in a Supported Configuration. However, if the problem can be replicated in a Supported Configuration, we will investigate the problem in that Supported Configuration and attempt to resolve it. If the problem cannot be replicated in a Supported Configuration, then we may elect not to work on that problem.

Configuring a tape device with a virtual machine is considered an “Alternative Configuration”. For more details on the configuration of virtual machines with tape devices, see the following related articles:

https://www.veritas.com/support/en_US/article.100023671 Support for Backup Exec in virtual and IaaS environments

Disk Targets

The disk target software versions listed in this section are the minimum software levels that are supported. Where more than one software level is listed, this implies a newer version has been tested. The earlier software version is the minumum version required.

Cloud storage providers will be individually certified for use with Backup Exec, therefore, additional Cloud providers will be added as they are certified.

Disk Targets

For this basic support, any device recognized and supported by the Windows platform should work with Backup Exec. Mapped network drives are not supported. UNC paths are supported. The disk devices listed in these two sections have been tested with Backup Exec as a result of a formal joint business agreement and OEM relationship, but are not intended to be a complete list of compatible devices.

For “basic” disk storage capabilities, Backup Exec does not exclude or block recognition for disk devices. Basic disk storage devices can be seen in the Disk Storage and Disk Cartridge sections. This information is organized by vendor and provides information on the storage devices tested, the Inquiry Strings (if applicable), the type of interface, media type, and any special notes on a per device basis.

If the desired device is not already listed in this section, customers are encouraged to run the B2D test tool to verify their desired device’s level of functionality. If Backup Exec is not already installed, the B2D test tool can be downloaded from https://www.veritas.com/content/support/en_US/article.100020569. Instructions for use are in that same technote. Backup Exec Technical Support will be unable to offer assistance if the device experiences failures during the B2Dtest and the customer should contact the hardware vendor for advice and assistance.

Devices running the Windows Unified Data Storage Server OS which provides iSCSI target functionality are supported per the Software Compatibility List. See http://www.backupexec.com/compatibility for supported operating system details.

Devices running the Windows Storage Server OS (sometimes referred to as a NAS) can be used as a Backup Exec Media Server if the operating system version is on the Software Compatibility List (SCL). Some examples are the Dell NX3200, the HPE StoreEasy series, and others. If the server meets the prerequisites for adding the Backup Exec Deduplication Option, then that server’s local disks can be used for deduplication by that Backup Exec Media Server. See http://www.backupexec.com/compatibility for supported operating system details.
If the server vendor supports the server as an iSCSI target, then it can be supported for remote deduplication storage from other Backup Exec Media Servers. Refer to the HCL Disk Storage section for tested systems, but other systems would be supported also. Please see the deduplication best practices document at https://www.veritas.com/content/support/en_US/doc/72686287-131623464-0/v70445236-131623464
A server running Windows Storage Server is NOT supported for OpenStorage (OST) target storage use, unless that server/appliance appears in the OST section of the HCL. A server running Windows Storage Server may be used with the Remote Agent for Windows Servers (RAWS) to send data to an OST appliance.

For more advanced disk capabilities, refer to the OST-Appliance section or VSS Providers for Offhost backup sections. The presence of the disk device in these advanced sections is required for support.

Granular Restore Technology (GRT) support, per deduplication type

Deduplication typeGRT support method
Backup Exec Deduplication Disk StorageNon-GRT and GRT backups are supported and no staging is needed for GRT restores.
Hardware based deduplication OpenStorage appliances1. Non-GRT and GRT backup are supported but staging is needed at time of GRT restores. Backups will be faster and restores slower (due to staging).
2. Alternately if the device supports it then one can create B2D using CIFS share and then run backups. Backups will be slower but GRT restores will be faster.

Disk Storage

The disk devices listed in this section have been tested with Backup Exec, but are not intended to be a complete list of compatible devices.

To clarify: not all supportable disk device are listed in this section. There are simply too many variations to certify them all.

If the desired device is not already listed in this section, customers are encouraged to run the B2D test tool to verify their desired device’s level of functionality. If Backup Exec is not already installed, the B2D test tool can be downloaded from https://www.veritas.com/content/support/en_US/article.100020569. Instructions for use are in that same technote. Backup Exec Technical Support will be unable to offer assistance if the device experiences failures during the B2Dtest and the customer should contact the hardware vendor for advice and assistance. If you do run B2Dtest on a disk device not listed here, please submit the results to mailto:Backup_Exec_HCL@veritas.com .Go to Top of “Disk Storage”

Disk Device Legend

ValueMeaning
ConnectivityThe method by which the device communicates with the Backup Exec server.
Character used to denote successful completion of acceptance testing for the item listed in the column.
Basic B2DBasic functionality of a device as it relates to being used as a Backup-to-Disk device (Disk Storage) in Backup Exec. Backup Exec’s Granular Restore Technology (GRT) is not included in Basic B2D.
GRT TestedGranular Restore Technology (GRT) has been validated specifically for this device.
The presence of a checkmark ✔ in this column indicates that no staging is needed for GRT restores.
The presence of an “S” in this column indicates that staging may be needed at time of GRT restores. This is typically exhibited with CIFS connectivity.
BEDedupBackup Exec Deduplication is the native method for deduplication – enabled via an additional “Backup Exec Deduplication Option”, and referred to as “Backup Exec Deduplication Disk Storage”.
Only Local disks may be used for deduplication storage. Removable interfaces like USB and FireWire are also not supported due to the perceived temporary connection method and issues that can arise from a device that is unsafely removed or appears on a different path. For Devices with a supported interface the absence of a check here does not signify that the device will not be supported, merely that deduplication tests have not been run in combination with this device. See comments above regarding, “not intended to be a complete list of compatible devices”. The Backup Exec Deduplication Option is recommended for use on a dedicated / non-removable volume as the location to store the deduplication disk storage. For this reason, there are no dedup checkboxes in the Disk Cartridge device section.
While possible, the usage of the “Backup Exec Deduplication Option” with USB, FireWire, and remote disks implies the customer is doing so at their own risk and without official Veritas support.

OST-Appliance

OpenStorage Servers are intelligent storage devices that interface to Backup Exec Servers and Remote Agents for Windows (with Direct Access) via the Veritas OpenStorage (OST) API. The vendor supplying the Storage Server appliance provides a software Plug-in, which is installed on each Backup Exec Server and Remote Agent for Windows (with Direct Access) that is attached to the OpenStorage Server.

OST functionality is available on supported Windows Backup Exec 21 Backup Exec Server and Remote Agent for Windows platforms.

Please see the Backup Exec System Administrator’s Guide for more information on how to use OST.

Attention: OpenStorage (OST) appliance users: Backup Exec 21 may require a new OST plug-in from your appliance vendor.
Please contact your vendor for access to this new plug-in. If needed, the required Backup Exec 21 plug-in details will be listed as a footnote in the “Storage Server Family” column, per vendor.

In the tables below, “Basic Duplication” refers to server-side or client-side deduplication.

Where support is shown for Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2016, or Windows Server 2019, please reference the Software Compatibility List ( http://www.backupexec.com/compatibility ) for supported operating system versions.

  1. Note: OpenDedupe devices must NOT be shared between BE server nodes, even in an MMS/CAS environment. Do not use the same cloud bucket for two different BE servers. OpenDedupe does not support device sharing at this time. Although BE may allow you to share the device, you must not share it. Corruption of the dedupe data is a likely result.
  2. Plugin version 2.1.3.0 is required.
  3. SDFS Cloud File System 3.4.10.1 is required.
  4. The OpenDedupe OST Plugin is not supported on a Backup Exec Remote Agent. The Opendedupe OST plugin must be used on a Backup Exec Server.

  1. The HPE v4.1 and v4.2 OST plugins do not support client-side deduplication for systems running the Backup Exec remote agent. This will be addressed by HPE in a future release of the plugin. For now, deduplication from the remote system must be done via server-side.
  2. Version 3.14 code is the minimum required for the StoreOnce 3100, 3520, 3540, 5100, or 5500 devices. The code is not backwards compatible with earlier versions of StoreOnce hardware. For more information, please contact Hewlett Packard Enterprise.
  3. Refer to the following technote for FC configuration information. https://www.veritas.com/support/en_US/article.100041993
  4. There is a capacity reporting issue with early versions of the 4.2 plugin. Please upgrade to 4.2.1.2532 (or greater) or consult HPE about bugs 123275 & 124555
  5. StoreOnce VSA is a virtual appliance. For device details and platform support refer to: https://www.hpe.com/h20195/v2/GetDocument.aspx?docname=c04328820

  1. Dell EMC has separated/sold the DR appliance division into Quest. Customers should migrate to running newer Quest branded software on the appliance and using the Quest branded plugin. Download Quest stuff from https://support.quest.com/download-product-select
  2. For 4.0: The Quest packaged 4.x plug-in installer should be used to install the required OST plugin. The Quest packaged 4.0.2 (or newer) plug-in installer now installs two plugin files, one named for Dell and one named for Quest. When configuring storage within Backup Exec 21, and if your DR appliance is running 4.0.2 (or newer), please select the “Quest” provider. The Backup Exec adamm.log will document which plugin is being used in the line “OST Server: DELL:DR4300-HPVxxxx” versus “OST Server: QUEST:DR4300-HPVxxxx”. There are no performance differences between the different named plugins. There are no changes to the container on the Quest DR appliance side. The container may be using either the Symantec or the Veritas OST access protocol. In other words: The Dell-named libstspiDellMT.dll works & is supported by Backup Exec 21. The preferred Quest-named libstspiocaMT.dll works & is supported in Backup Exec 21.
  3. Please see the Quest Migration Guide for changing Dell containers to Quest containers https://support.quest.com/download/downloads?id=6084223
  4. Plug-in version 4.1.0.327 (or higher) is required for NEW Backup Exec 21 installations. Older (supported) versions of the plugin (3.2 & 4.0) are acceptable when Backup Exec is upgraded in-place to Backup Exec 21.
  5. The 3.2 PLUGINS work with BE 21, but the 3.2 INSTALLER does NOT work with BE 21.
  6. Plug-in version 4.1.0.327 (or higher) is required for NEW Backup Exec 21 installations. Older (supported) versions of the plugin (4.1) are acceptable when Backup Exec is upgraded in-place to Backup Exec 21.
  7. QoreStor is supported on Linux, ESX & Hyper-V platforms.
  8. The Quest packaged 4.x plug-in installer should be used to install the required OST plugin. The Quest packaged 4.0.2 (or newer) plug-in installer now installs two plugin files, one named for Dell and one named for Quest. When configuring storage within Backup Exec 21, please select the “Quest” provider. The Backup Exec adamm.log will document which plugin is being used in the line “OST Server: DELL:hostname:container” versus “OST Server: QUEST:hostname:container”. There are no performance differences between the different named plugins. There are no changes to the container on the Quest QoreStor side. The container may be using either the Symantec or the Veritas OST access protocol. In other words: The Dell-named libstspiDellMT.dll works & is supported by Backup Exec 21. The preferred Quest-named libstspiocaMT.dll works & is supported in Backup Exec 21.

VSS Providers for Offhost backup

This list of tested Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) components represents what has been tested in Veritas labs, or in Veritas-supervised partner labs. To ensure compatibility, Veritas, the device manufacturers, and the operating system vendor must support the combination of VSS components. Note: The Backup Exec Advanced Disk Based Backup Option, now part of the Enterprise Server Option, is required for VSS. See the Administrator’s Guide for more details on usage of the VSS provider.

Please Note:

1. The provider version and array firmware listed in this section are the minimum levels that are supported. Where more than one entry level is listed in these “Minimum” columns, this implies a newer version has been tested. The earlier versions are the minimum versions required. The hardware vendor may specify rules for pairing of the provider and firmware versions.

2. The Array Firmware listed in this section are the minimum levels that are supported.

3. The Advanced Open File job options are not supported for use with Dynamic Disk Snapshots.Go to Top of “VSS Providers for Offhost backup”

Virtual Tape Libraries with Drives

The virtual tape device support information is listed below. This information is organized by vendor and provides information on the level of software tested, inquiry string (vendor ID + product ID), and any other important notes about the hardware and its compatibility.

Please Note:

1. The virtual tape device software listed in this section are the minimum software levels that are supported. Where more than one software level is listed, this implies a newer version has been tested. The earlier software version is the minimum version required.

2. Configure the virtual device with the unique inquiry string as listed in this document. Emulating other devices is not supported.

3. For each virtual library only the virtual tape drives that are listed are supported. This information can be found with each virtual section. Other virtual tape drive types are not supported even if the real device is supported with Backup Exec.

4. Do not fill up the disk space on a virtual device. Doing so may cause unpredictable behavior of the device. The device vendor will then have to recover from any errors that result from a full disk.

5. When moving virtual volumes to physical media it works best if the virtual device has a volume size that is dynamic. Make sure that the virtual volume is slightly smaller than the physical volume. When you migrate the data to physical media you will need to ensure that there is enough space on the physical device in order to accommodate the virtual volume size.

6. It is highly recommended that Backup Exec move virtual volumes to physical media so that the data can be restored directly from physical media rather than needing to utilize the virtual device as an intermediary restoration point. If the virtual tape library moves virtual volumes to physical media Backup Exec is not aware of the physical media and may not be able to recover that data directly from that physical media.

7. When a virtual volume becomes overwriteable, the virtual device is not aware that the data is no longer needed. When Backup Exec overwrites that virtual volume the virtual library is aware that the rest of the data is not needed and it can free up the disk space. Because of this, the virtual device may appear to be much closer to capacity than it really is.

8. Tested iSCSI versions of virtual tape libraries are listed in the “iSCSI Solutions” section, under the “SAN Infrastructure components” bookmark. Please reference the limitations listed in that section.

9. The software versions documented here are obtained from the library interface (web or physical) and may not match the firmware version logged in the adamm.log.

10. All VTLs shared with the Linux server(s) must be approved for both RMAL and ESO. Zoning or LUN masking are possible methods of preventing Linux servers from seeing a VTL not approved for RMAL.Go to Top of “Virtual Tape Libraries with Drives”

Virtual Tape Library Families

When a hardware family of devices is listed, refer to this section for a definition of family members. Generally speaking, the family name and members are defined by the hardware manufacturer, and share common operational traits. In some cases, a specific member of the family may not be supported in the same fashion as the other members. When this occurs, a footnote in the hardware category section will indentify this limitation.Go to Top of “Virtual Tape Library Families”

Tape Drives

The tape drive support information is listed below. This information is organized by vendor and provides information on the tape drives tested, the supported Inquiry Strings, the type of interface, media type, and any special notes on a per device basis.

Please Note:

1. To ensure support, a device must be supported by Veritas and the device manufacturer.

2. Unless otherwise noted, Veritas tape class drivers were used when testing Windows-supported devices.

3. At times the manufacturer may refer to their devices by product name, which differs from the model name.

4. WORM is supported only on tape drives with a footnote indicating WORM support and a possible minimum firmware or software level. These footnotes are documented in this stand-alone tape drive section. To determine if WORM is supported in an automation environment. (i.e. physical tape libraries), please refer to the tape drive manufacturers stand-alone drive section and check for a footnote. If WORM is supported in the manufacturers drive section, then it is supported in all automation, unless documented otherwise in the automation section.

5. Hardware encryption is supported only on tape drives with a footnote indicating hardware encryption support and a possible minimum firmware or software level. These footnotes are documented in this stand-alone tape drive section. To determine if hardware encryption is supported in an automation environment. (i.e. physical tape libraries), please refer to the tape drive manufacturers stand-alone drive section and check for a footnote. If hardware encryption is supported in the manufacturers drive section, then it is supported in all automation, unless documented otherwise in the automation section.

6. The “ULTRIUM-TD” and the “ULT3580-TD” inquiry strings are interchangeable (both are supported), unless otherwise indicated. The “ULTRIUM-HH” and the “ULT3580-HH” inquiry strings are interchangeable (both are supported), unless otherwise indicated.

7. Unless specifically stated in technote article https://www.veritas.com/content/support/en_US/article.100021088 , tape libraries or tape drives attached to a RAID controller are not supported.

8. The HPE One Button Disaster Recovery (OBDR) feature is no longer supported with Backup Exec.

9. The LTO ‘Encrypt Only’ feature is currently not supported with any robotic library or tape drive. This new LTO feature is being investigated by Veritas.

10. Backup Exec supports LTO-7 Type M media (also known as M8 cartridges) in the following manner. These are LTO-7 cartridges that have been formatted to a new LTO-8 standard and their native capacity increased from 6TB to 9TB.

• M8 cartridges are only supported with LTO-8 tape drives, either stand-alone tape drives or in an M8 supported tape library.

• M8 cartridges pre-formatted by the media vendor are supported.

• M8 cartridges manually formatted using hardware vendors’ software tools or tape library firmware features (automatic or manual) are supported.

• Backup Exec does NOT have the ability to convert LTO-7 cartridges to M8 format.

• Backup Exec requires version 20 Update 1 (aka 20.1) (or higher) to support hardware encryption on M8 media.

• Backup Exec requires version 20 Update 1 (aka 20.1) (or higher) to provide pre-configured bar code rules and pre-defined media type for M8 cartridges.

• Customers should use caution when re-labeling the bar code on used LTO-7 cartridges as an LTO-7 cartridge with good data could be accidentally erased in a tape library with firmware that automatically re-initializes tapes with M8 bar codes.

• For details on M8 (formatting methods, technical information, supported barcodes, etc.) please consult the tape hardware documentation or vendor.

Tape Libraries with Drives

The library support information is listed below. This information is organized by vendor manufacturer/model, inquiry string (vendor ID + product ID), the interface of the library, and any other important notes or information relevant to the hardware and its compatibility.

Partitioning a library using the library management for sharing between applications and/or servers is a hardware specific feature available in certain library storage systems. Customers using this hardware feature with Backup Exec are supported, but due the variations in design and implementation, technical support is provided in a “reasonable effort” basis only. This means that Veritas Technical Support will work with customers to resolve issues associated only with the Backup Exec portion of the shared configurations, and any issues that cannot be duplicated outside of the shared environment will be the responsibility of the OEM hardware vendor to support.

Please Note:

1. This listing is for library support and the tape drive it was tested with. If a tape library is configured with a drive other than that listed, it has not been tested and will not be supported.

2. Tested iSCSI versions of tape libraries are listed in the “iSCSI Solutions” section, under the “SAN Infrastructure components” bookmark. Please reference the limitations listed in that section.

3. The “ULTRIUM-TD” and the “ULT3580-TD” inquiry strings are interchangeable (both are supported), unless otherwise indicated. The “ULTRIUM-HH” and the “ULT3580-HH” inquiry strings are interchangeable (both are supported), unless otherwise indicated.

4. Unless specifically stated in technote article https://www.veritas.com/content/support/en_US/article.100021088 , tape libraries or tape drives attached to a RAID controller are not supported.

5. Libraries or drives with an interface column of “SCSI” require an interface card or bridge to establish a connection to an FC switch. Please see the “SAN Infrastructure components/Fibre Channel Infrastructure/Bridges and Routers” section for supported devices.

6. Please refer to the stand-alone tape drive section (above) and look under the drive manufacturer to determine WORM or hardware encryption support status.

7. The LTO ‘Encrypt Only’ feature is currently not supported with any robotic library or tape drive. This new LTO feature is being investigated by Veritas.Go to Top of “Tape Libraries with Drives”

  1. Minimum firmware levels of 0018 are required for the library and B171 for the drive.
  2. IBM markets this under two names, with and without the words “Express Model”. They are identical and both are supported.
  3. L1 barcode labels on a cleaning media will cause a cleaning utility job to hang indefinitely. Recommend using L2 (or above) barcode labels for cleaning media.
  4. L1 and L2 barcode labels on a cleaning media will cause a cleaning utility job to hang indefinitely. Recommend using L3 (or above) barcode labels for cleaning media.
  5. Capacity and compression reporting is not currently supported for this device.
  6. Due to IBM ALMS virtualizing the tape slots: the tapes are not in the slot order as they appear in the BE GUI and the cleaning tapes are not visible to BE. Therefore drive cleaning must be done via the library itself.
  7. For optimal performance, do not mix generations of 3592 drives in a single logical library. Media problems can result when different drive generations are mixed. Please see http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21570099

Tape Library Families

When a hardware family of devices is listed, refer to this section for a definition of family members. Generally speaking, the family name and members are defined by the hardware manufacturer, and share common operational traits. In some cases, a specific member of the family may not be supported in the same fashion as the other members. When this occurs, a footnote in the hardware category section will indentify this limitation.Go to Top of “Tape Library Families”

NDMP Platforms

The NDMP platform support information is listed below. This information is organized by vendor manufacturer/model(s), minimum software required, method of connection, and any other important notes or information relevant to the hardware and its compatibility.

The storage devices supported by the NDMP option are included with the Tape Library / Virtual Tape Library sections. In these sections, search by storage device vendor, then model, then look for a check [✔] in the NDMP column for support. Please note that the presence of a check means that Veritas will support the storage device and NDMP combination IF and ONLY IF the NDMP vendor also supports the library / drive combination. Please refer to the NDMP vendors’ documentation for storage device support and possible limitations. If known, these compatibility lists are listed in the notes section by vendor.

Please Note:

1. The tape library drivers are supplied by Veritas with Backup Exec 21.

2. The tape drive drivers are supplied by the NDMP platform vendor when using Direct-attach or 3-Way NDMP Connection methods.

3. NDMP only supports libraries (real or virtual). Stand-alone tape drives are not supported when using Direct-attach or 3-Way NDMP Connection methods.

4. Validate that firewalls allow NDMP traffic.

5. LTO8 and LTO7 support is fairly new. Please verify the LTO drives supported with your NDMP platform provider.

6. This NDMP hardware section is only required when using the Backup Exec NDMP option. The Backup Exec NDMP option is typically used for backing up file data on the below listed NDMP/NAS servers. If the NDMP/NAS server contains VM images or databases, those items are typically better protected via other Backup Exec Agents or Options.

NDMP Option minimum requirements:

1. NDMP v4 is required.

2. The NDMP server has the Network Data Management Protocol enabled.

The following table describes the supported NDMP connection methods. Veritas supports these connection methods, provided the NDMP platform vendor does as well.Go to Top of “NDMP Platforms”

NDMP Connection Methods

Connection MethodDescription
Direct-attachData travels from NDMP disk to a tape device on the same NDMP host, or from NDMP disk to a tape device on a SAN. Backup data is NOT sent over the local Ethernet network. The tape device is connected directly to the NAS device via SCSI or Fibre Channel. This is the only NDMP Connection Method that is “LAN free”.
RemoteData travels from the NDMP host, across the local Ethernet network to a Backup Exec server, and then to a tape or disk device connected to the Backup Exec server. Any Backup Exec supported tape or disk device can be used with this Connection Method. A checkmark is NOT needed in the NDMP column of the tape library since the target tape or disk device is not directly connected to the NDMP/NAS. This is the only Connection Method available if the NDMP server doesn’t support attaching a local tape library via SCSI or Fibre Channel.
3-wayData travels from disk on an NDMP host to a tape device on another NDMP host of the same vendor/brand/family. Backup data is sent over the local network. This requires multiple NDMP servers from the same vendor/brand/family. The target tape device must have a checkmark in the NDMP column.

  1. Dell EMC versioning clarification: Dell EMC marketing refers to it as v5, but it shows up in the adamm.log as “Operating System Version 1.5.0.xxxx”. This is consistent with their earlier versioning style, v4 = 1.4, v3 = 1.3, v2 = 1.2, etc.
  2. Dell EMC versioning clarification: Dell EMC marketing refers to it as v6, but it shows up in the adamm.log as “Operating System Version 1.6.0.xxxx”. This is consistent with their earlier versioning style, v4 = 1.4, v3 = 1.3, v2 = 1.2, etc.
  3. Required support can be found in “BE 21.1”. Use the latest Update available via Veritas Update. The Readme for “BE 21.1” is at https://www.veritas.com/content/support/en_US/doc/59226813-141939443-0/index
  4. EMC’s HCL can be found here: https://elabnavigator.emc.com Select “Customers and Partners” and then select PDFs and Guides and open Celerra .pdf
  5. Direct-attach support has a maximum tape block size of 64kB by default. Consult Unity documentation to enable proper functionality for larger block sizes.
  6. Direct-attach support requires Unity Operating Environment version 4.4.1.1538211294 or later.
  7. Direct-attach support requires that SCSI reservations be enabled manually (the scsiReserve setting). Please see Unity documentation.
  8. EMC VNXe firmware 3.1.5.6801782 (or higher) is required.
  9. VNXe supports “3-way” with the restriction that VNXe can’t support the NDMP Tape Server part of a 3-way operation. 3-way requires a VNX or Celerra data mover as the NDMP Tape Server. ESO is supported when used with a 3-way connection.

SAN Infrastructure Components

The SAN infrastructure components section of the HCL is split into three sections – traditional fibre channel infrastructure components, FCoE infrastructure, and iSCSI “solutions”. The fibre channel and FCoE sections list possible components to be used interchangeably, whereas the iSCSI section lists SAN components to be used as a solution; a complete set of hardware from hardware or software initiator, through interconnect (if any), to storage device.

Fibre channel SANs: To verify support for tape libraries, or virtual tape libraries (VTL), refer to the column labelled “ESO” in the respective “Tape Libraries with Drives” or “Virtual Tape Libraries with Drives” sections.

Libraries or drives with an interface column of “SCSI” require an interface card or bridge to establish a connection to an FC switch. Please see the content below for supported devices.

Go to Top of “SAN Infrastructure Components”

Fibre Channel Infrastructure

This list of supported fibre-channel storage area network (SAN) components represents what has been tested in Veritas labs, or in Veritas-supervised partner labs.

The Backup Exec FC and FCoE Shared Storage Option (SSO) hardware support model for Storage Area Network (SAN) components is now an open model (this is a new policy for Backup Exec 21). In other words, all Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) converged network adapters (CNA), Fibre Channel (FC) host bus adapters (HBA), switches, bridges, and routers are supported in a SAN environment. This means that if a FCoE or FC component is causing a problem, Veritas will work with the component vendor in an attempt to resolve the problem, but resolution is not guaranteed. Veritas and most hardware vendors listed are members of TSANet. To ensure compatibility, the device manufacturers and the operating system vendor must support the combination of SAN components.

This list of SAN components represents equipment that has been used during Backup Exec qualification testing of devices listed in previous sections of this document. It is not intended to be a list of supported components.

To verify support for tape libraries, or virtual tape libraries (VTL), refer to the column labelled “ESO” in the respective “Tape Libraries with Drives” or “Virtual Tape Libraries with Drives” sections.

HBAs

Note: The OS and Version information indicate the tested platform. Unless specifically noted all other OS Versions are supported.

Veritas recommends (where possible), the following to avoid complications in the SAN environment:

1. Avoid mixing HBAs from different vendors.

2. All HBAs should use the same firmware, BIOS and driver revision.

3. Consult the hardware vendor’s web site for up-to-date firmware and driver updates.

4. Where support is shown for Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2012, or Windows Server 2016, please reference the Software Compatibility List ( http://www.backupexec.com/compatibility ) for supported operating system versions.Go to Top of “HBAs”

This section is a mix of physical and virtual TAPE libraries. iSCSI disk solutions are listed in the appropriate Disk sections of this HCL.

Please Note:

1. Each column within the configuration tables represents the key components that were tested in an iSCSI SAN with the Backup Exec Enterprise Server Option (ESO).

2. To ensure compatibility, Veritas, the device manufacturers, and the operating system vendor must support the combination of iSCSI devices.

3. Configurations that use the Microsoft iSCSI initiator aren’t supported with the Simplified Disaster Recovery (SDR) option.

4. The firmware and driver versions listed are minimum recommended levels. For device support and firmware/driver updates, please contact your hardware vendor.

5. Where possible, avoid mixing of vendor HBAs. All like HBAs within your SAN should use the same firmware, BIOS and driver revision.

6. In some cases, tape libraries with mixed media drive types were tested. Either drive type may be used.

Support End-of-Life

EOL Notice: These devices are no longer officially supported for use with this version of Backup Exec. This is a periodic process to bring Backup Exec support in line with what is still supported by the hardware vendors and/or the device’s age, capacity or performance. Please be aware that different vendors may have different EOL policies for their particular model of a common device. See the HCL introduction for further clarification of our policies and goals. No changes were made to Backup Exec to drop support or recognition for these devices, so it is fully expected that they will continue to work with this version of Backup Exec. But if a problem is discovered with the device, it is likely that vendor support, repair parts, and/or firmware fixes are no longer available which limits the ability of our Veritas technical support team to help resolve your issue. Please be aware that Windows 2008 (and newer) treats some devices (especially ATAPI/IDE/SATA) different than Windows 2003 did, so if you are moving old hardware to a new server, the operating system change may have more of an impact than changing versions of Backup Exec.

OST Note: The OST section contains rows that frequently indicate that support for a plug-in has expired, per the OST vendor’s request. Please do not assume that support for the entire device is withdrawn. Your OST device and OST plug-in version probably just need to be updated.
