HP StorageWorks ESL G3 does support DAS connection ?

Hi

 

I have a question, i have installed a HP ESL G3 without SAN switch, the connection is DAS, i mean, i have a DL380 Proliant G8 with a HBA, i have connected the tape library direct to the server.

 

The HP ESL G3 has a 4 tape driver, i just connected one drive direct to the one proliant server and the MCB from HP ESL connected to another proliant server in order to control the robotic, but i can not achieve that the library work.

I am not sure about this configuration, i think HP ESL G3 does not support DAS connection it´s just support SAN connection

 

Any advice

 

Best Regards

Hi,

 

HP Storageworks ESL G3 library is an Enterprise class library and it doesn't support direct attatch to the Server HBA. This library has lot of features that are usefull for SAN environments.
