Hi All,

I have an issue which backup server unable to detect tape library. May I know fiber cable able to connect directly from backup server to tape library or required SAN switch to get connected?

if you have an NSR which would be next to the library controller that should have a fibre connection, but would need to be configured, then again if you have one then you'd probably be using it.

You probably need to adjust the fibre settings within the NSR, example is showing a fabric connection to a switch, would be "loop" on a direct connection.
