Does anyone out there have any experience using a tape autoloader drive with
linux? I am looking at getting a 6 x 20/40GB DDS4 tape autoloader that
rotates through 1 tape after another when the previous gets full, giving a
capacity of 120 - 240GB of backup space! My gut feeling is that there won't
be a problem with the first tape loaded and this can be used over and over
just like a single tape drive, but I suspect that there is a bit of wizardry
required to get the tapes to change. A product like ArcServe might do the
trick, but if I can get away without forking out for expensive tape backup
software, then all the better.
