Crossroads 4250 Storage Router help


I have to connect one N4000 box thru Crossroads 4250 Storage router to one L700e Tape library. Configuration is - N4000,hpux 11.11 with Dec2004 patch set, Tachyon A5158a Fiber card, Direct fiber attach to Storage router and then scsi interface to L700e. I can't see anything from server side although it shows all the scsi tape drives from the router when I scan.
I tried everything from router side. Can anybody pls help me with this. Link shows up from Server side. Do I need any driver for this. Nothing shows as unclaimed.

(I don't own a Crossroads router myself, I only have a crappy IBM model, BUT I've got a manual here in front of me ;)

at first:
- does You the N4000 see the Crossroads?
(/opt/fcms/bin/fcmsutil /dev/td0 get remote all (or td1, or something else)
- does Your FC adapter show it's in AL_PA mode?

- is the router in initiator mode?

- is FC discovery enabled? (otherwise it says You'll have to manually set up mappings between scsi bus/id/lun and fc wwns.

- try to print out the Fibre Channel to SCSI mapping table.

As far as I understood the manual, things should work right away with the default settings. :(

yesterday I stood at the edge. Today I'm one step ahead.
