ESLe322 with 4 LTO4 drives and zoning

we have need to configure an ESLe322 with 4 LTO4 tape drives on the SAN.

i know that the LTO4 drives should be connected to the SAN switches.

the customer have two san switches. should i connect each 2 tape drives to a switch?

do i need to connect the Interface controller to the san also?

how should be the zoning done to enable an hpux host (dataprotector server)to manage the library?

how the zoning should be done for other servers?

thanks

hi,

have a look through the docs on the hp enterprise backup web page here :-

http://h18006.www1.hp.com/products/storageworks/ebs/ebs123-2.html

hopefully this should get you started.

Hi,

Can you share.

1). How many host you want to connect to ESL
2). SAN switch is in redundancy or not & how many ports is in SAN switch.
3). Same host will be connected to Storage through this SAN switch or not.

2/ yes there is a san redundancy (2 SAN switches) + 8 available ports on each switch

3/ NO,same host will not be connected to storage through this SAN switch

Hi,

Connect all LTO drive with Interface, and Interface will be connected to the SAN switches.

All host should be connected to the SAN switches through FC.

You have to configure zonning in SAN switches by using WWN numbewr in case of soft zonning or you can use HARD (port base)zonning.
