The user has a couple options to use. Since BackupEDGE does not
supply a driver for the tape drives, the information that is provided
by edge.config is used by the BackupEDGE scripts to build a command
line. You can choose a cartridge that has an uncompressed native
capacity that is close to the cartridge you are actually using. By
saving this setting you can get the capacity of the cartridge
selected only if your native cartridge capacity is larger.
Secondly, you can add your data cartridge to the list of cartridges
found under edge.config. When in edge.config, select option 'Q'
Add/Change/Delete devices. Remember to calculate your volume size
to be an even divisor of your block factor. Most importantly, set
the Device Can Seek to 'NO'. For details on this option, consult
the section in your BackupEDGE manual titled "Modifying The Default
Device Libraries". If you don't have a manual, you can check our
on-line manual in PDF format.
