PowerEdge 830 tape drive question

  • does anybody know what the exact tape drive I have on my system ? this from the dell system's info

     

    1 R3999 TAPE BACKUP UNIT, 36/72G, HALF HEIGHT, INTERNAL, S, DAT72


    1 G4058 MODULE, TAPE BACKUP UNIT, 36GB, HALF HEIGHT, NO CONTROLLER/NO CABLES, INTERNAL, DAT72


    1 T5427 ASSEMBLY, CABLE, SCSI (SMALL COMPUTER SYSTEMS INTERFACE), 68P, 1DROP, LOW VOLTAGE DIFFERENTIAL

  • Most likely a PV100T DAT72
  • I believe almost all of the internal tape drives Dell sells are called PowerVault 100T. It looks like the TBU you have will be a Seagate DAT72 drive.
