SCSI Megaraid

Hi

ESXi 5.0.0 and SCSI controller MegaRAID (I have tryed another Qlogic, Adaptec) and it works. But I have tape drive DAT72. Can I use it iside virtual machine? Linux or any Windows? Now ESXi can see my MegaRAID but no devices - no tape drive. What to do?

Hi

yes you can use tape drive inside vmware , but make sure that hardware should support .
