FC Autoloader directly connected to Server query

FC Autoloader directly connected to Server query

 


Hi There

 

I have a HP LTO5 3000 Tape Autoloader, and a HP DL380 Server with PCIe Fibre channel card.

 

My question is can I connect the tape drive directly to the server without the use of a fibre switch etc, and backup directly from the server to the tape library?

 

I am aware that this can be done use the SAS Autoloader but have not read anywhere to say that it can or can't be doe with the fibre model?

 

Any help would be appreciated

 

Thanks

Jon.M

I assume you can adjust the fibre connecting mode from the web page of the loader (from fabric to loop or whatever it is called there).

Hope this helps!
