The answer should be yes.
Unless your sharing the same ACSLS tape drives in both configurations.
But if there are two drive pools defined in ACSLS and each have defined tape
pools that are separated by the acsls software then there is no issue here.
never share a robot between two NetBackup masters unless you set one as the
volume database host and the second as a Master as far as scheduling but a
slave as far as media management is concerned.
That means that Master 1 is the volume database host and Master 2 points to
Master 1 as the volume database host.
This saves you from overwriting tapes.
But even in this config you need to be at the same rev level of software.

Subject: [Veritas-bu] ACSLS and multiple versions of Netbackup
Trying to find the answer to this on both the Veritas and StorageTek site
has proved to be useless.
Does anyone know if you can share, (specifically) a StorageTek PowederHorn
9310 using the ACSLS for robotics control, with multiple Master servers with
different versions of Netbackup (specifically 3.2 and 3.4).
I am also chasing this question down with StorageTek but I wanted to see if
there are any known hang-ups from the Veritas side from anyone who might
have done this.
Believe me when I say there is an excellent reason to do this in our
