Yes, why not?

What do you have - fibre channel or SCSI?
What type of drives and how many?

Hope this helps!

Hi,

If you're just using SCSI, then probably the easiest method is to install a second SCSI card in that server to talk to the second MSL.

You *might* be able to alter the SCSI IDs on the second library so as not to cause an ID conflict, which would allow you to "daisy chain" the two libraries, however that wouldn't be recommended from a performance point of view. You don't say what drives are in the libraries, but for LTO-3 and later you only really want one drive per SCSI bus.

Hope this helps,

Regards,

Rob
