SL150 - Support for Teranet/MPIO For Tape Drives On Windows 2012 Sever (Doc ID 2113493.1)

Last updated on JUNE 07, 2017

Applies to:

StorageTek SL150 Modular Tape Library - Version All Versions and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

The customer has stated that they installed the HP Advanced Path Failover Driver but from what I can tell, this is only supported on HP libraries. Do we have or plan to have a similar driver available for the SL150? Or is there any plan to provide a DSM module for MPIO that would support some sort of Active/Passive Path Failover mechanism for tape drives?
The link to the HP Advanced Path Failover Driver document is located here; h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c04325872.pdf and is titled "StoreEver Tape Libraries LTO-5 and LTO-6 Failover User Guide".

Goal

Is there any plan to provide a DSM module for MPIO that would support some sort of Active/Passive Path Failover mechanism for tape drives?

HP offers a fail-over driver for their tape drive when utilized with their libraries but Oracle does not.
Is there any plan to offer such a driver in the future?
