functionality by presenting an autoloader or library and its tape cartridges as a collection of folders
for easy data access and management. For more information about LTFS capabilities, see the

Upgrading the MSL8048
The MSL8048 can be upgraded to the capacity of an MSL8096 with TA739A, the HPE MSL8048
48 to 96 slot license. The license enables 48 additional storage slots, including 12 slots that can
be configured as additional mailslots. To purchase the upgrade license, contact your Hewlett
Packard Enterprise sales representative or visit the Hewlett Packard Enterprise website at
Use the RMI Configure > License Key screen to manage the license key.

After you order the upgrade license, you can access the additional slots immediately by generating
a temporary license key. The temporary key can only be enabled once and is valid for 30 days.
The temporary key is intended to provide instant access to the upgrade capabilities
until you receive the permanent key. The temporary key expires after 30 days. If you do not have
a permanent license key before the temporary key expires, you will lose access to the additional
storage slots when the temporary license key expires.
When you receive the permanent license key from Hewlett Packard Enterprise, enter the key
and press Submit. The permanent license takes effect when the library is rebooted. You might
need to reboot the library to enable the additional slots.
LTO-4 and later generation tape drives and encryption
The LTO-4 and later generation tape drives include hardware capable of encrypting data while
writing data, and decrypting data when reading. Hardware encryption can be used with or without
compression while maintaining the full speed and capacity of the tape drive and media.
