Networker 7.6.3.4 and LTO4 encryption

Jump to solution

I was wondering if someone can guide me in the following scenario:

We have a site with a DELL PowerVault 124T tape auto-changer with LTO4 drives.  We are also running Networker 7.6.3.4 at the site.  I have been asked to encrypt the tapes and send them to another site that is running a Quantum i40 with LTO4 tape drive.  The seconds site should be able to read the tapes.  It is my understanding that Networker does not have anything native to the application to encrypt the tape.  What are my options?

Thanks.

NetWorker uses AES encryption and Server passphrase to encrypt data during backup.

Same passphrase should be used during recovery at other networker server.

Refer to below KB link for more details on encryption with NetWorker,

Thanks Prajith.  This is good for what I need to do for now without spending more money on hardware encryption solutions.
