My SAN media is connected to a Windows box. I would like to use this media for VTapes. What types of remote protocols do the amanada vtapes support? I could do nfs, smb, cifs, ftp, worst case i could divide my storage an present as iscsi.

Well, as long as the Amanda server can see your storage as a filesystem, it will use it.

You will be pushing large streams of data onto the storage. So, you should base your decision on whichever access protocol will yield the best performance for such a workload.

It will be great if you share here what you decide and your experience with it.

thanks
