K580 on 10.20 and msl6030

We have a client who wishes to upgrade their tape backup solution to alleviate Informix database archiving throughput.
Currently K580 x3, HPUX 10.20, 600gb data , omniback ll A.03.50
Backups to DLT takes 24hr.
HSB ports fully utilised, fc adapters to fc-al hub to fc1010 disk systems

Solution in plan is to upgrade to 1 x ultrium 960 in msl6030, fc-sw attached following upgrade of hub to switch.

Some disk controllers now have to sit behind switch as well.

The solutions seems to be workable, but would be interested to hear if any alternate suggestions out there, or show stoppers seen.

Upgrades of server or HPUX are not options !

You won't find much information about this, because HP-UX 10.20 is out of support since 2003.
There won't be an information about support of your equipment (K-Class, FC adapter (what model?), switch and MSL). I guess - even it could work - the system is not able to stream to the new ultrium drive, because it is simply too slow.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
