An example of a tape drive and media that supports Encryption:
- Mount a tape (In this example media id SYM021, density 'hcart')
# tpreq -m SYM021 -p NetBackup -d hcart -f /tmp/fred
- Now query device for Security Protocol In support
# scsi_command -d /tmp/fred -spi
STK T10000B 550V

Examine the Data Encryption Capabilities page information above and confirm AVFMV is reported.
The T10 standards describe this bit as :
The algorithm valid for mounted volume (AVFMV) bit shall be set to one if there is a volume currently mounted and the encryption algorithm being described is valid for that volume. The AVFMV bit shall be set to zero if there is no volume mounted or the algorithm is not valid for the currently mounted volume.
The setting of this bit is determined by the drive and the loaded media, NetBackup has no control over the setting/clearing of this bit.
When finished with testing, unmount the tape:
# tpunmount /tmp/fred
