EML E-Series installation

Hi all,

Iam trying to conect a EML library to my Windows systems.

The library is already attached to the SAN and the Zoning is properly configured. Iam able to see all HBA in EML and configured them.

My problem is i can´t any library / Tapes on in DataProtector when the autodiscover wizard is started.

Do i need install any software/driver on my systems?

many thanks,
Alexander

Re: EML E-Series installation

Does you OS see the drives? if not, did you went in CV-TL > Secure Manager, and did you assign the drive and robotic controller to the WWN of your host?

DP can use Windows drivers or not depending if it use storport or scsiport drivers

Hi Marino,

windows dosn´t see the drives.
In CV-TL > Secure Manager, i´ve allready attached the WWN to the right host.
There are 3 hosts configured with Port a + b beacuse it is a dual port fc-card.

I do not know if you used the discovered device wwn in Secure Manager, or if you entered the wwn by yourself. Be sue the wwn is correct.
If the presentation is correct, check your zoning, untill drives appear to your host OS

Hi Marino,

the presentation and zoning is correct.
The discover mode is in my backup solution (DataProtector 6.0)
The wwn are correct present in the EML.

Re: EML E-Series installation

the problem is, until you do not see the device in your host, you will not be able to configure your backup application.
Try to issue a device discovery from the aplication that manage your FC HBA (hbanywhere for emulex for example) and se if you can see the device from the HBA in the SAN. if you can see other devices and not those comming from the library, you will know where to look for

Hi Marino,

Iam able to see the hba´s in the library and the SAN is proper configured.
I´ve raised a HP Call and the technican told me the config looks good but he has no idea why the library will not be displayed in DataProtector.
