Hi! for the VLS can i directly attach a host? Will this be an issue if the host is AIX-based?

Re: VLS direct attach

The VLS does support loop topology, if that is what you mean by direct attach. I've been told that it has a pretty good track record during plug fests, so there is a good chance that it does work.

Re: VLS direct attach

Hi Uwe,

Do you know a link where i can verify this? The client wants to use the VLS as a regular tape device without having to connect to the SAN. They want to connect it directly to the FC HBA of an IBM p5 550 running AIX 5.3.

Thanks in advance!
