SCSI tape drives can be connected to a fibre channel port of the workstation by way of a fibre-channel-to-SCSI bridge, such as the Atto FibreBridge 2390D. The tape drive device must meet two criteria. First, the device’s driver must accept standard UNIX tape device calls. Second, the device must be certified for use with the currently supported version of the workstation operating system and kernel.
While Autodesk Media and Entertainment makes no certification statement about any tape drive device, you can use the “Tape Drive Test” plug-in in Autodesk SystemCentral to test SCSI tape drives for compatibility. For more information, see the Autodesk SystemCentral User Guide.
