Hi,
I have amanda 2.6.1.1 installed on a RH enterprise4.0.
I'm about to buy a new DAT (as the one I used to have is no more working).
I found HP StorageWorks DAT 160, that seeems to suite my needs but I'm not sure if it will work with Amanda, as it's not in the tape type list

Anyone have any experience on this?

thanks a lot

Regards

francesca

Hi, I don't but you may have noticed that the previous thread is about the "HP StorageWorks DAT72 USB (internal)". If you go with the drive, please note the conclusion of this thread which is you may have to use a smaller tape block size with this drive than is used by default by Amanda.
