Connecting MSL6030 to SAN

In my enviromenti I have several cluster (DL380 - Win2003 SP2) but I have a doubt about phisical connecion. In fact I have two HBA to redundant connect cluster to EVA4100. On one switch I have also connected the tape. So I have a HBA only to communicate with EVA and other both EVA and MLS. Are there any issue about thi config? Better way I think is to put another HBA only for tape..

No, it's OK like that, the MSL can be connected only to one switch.
You must configure zoning so there's a zone for server + EVA and another one for server + MSL. This avoids the traffic for backups from interfering with the access to EVA disks.

Hello Mateo,
You don't need an extra HBA to connect your tape. You have to be careful with the zoning configuration though, it would be advisable to create a separate zone for your MSL and your server.
