MSL4048 tape drive firmware update would unmount exchange mailbox database

-During the firmware update of the robotic library, my exchange server's mailbox database had been unmounted. Which in turn caused issues connecting to the mailbox.
-The firmware upgrade was done on my backup server and not the exchange server.
-although the exchange server sees and has the drivers installed for the robotic library.

I would like to know how can I prevent this from happening again, in the event that I would need to update the firmware in the future.

If you need more detail please advise.

Thank you for your time.

Hi!

Are they connected over fibre channel?
If so, maybe you could disable the zone with the exchange/library?

Sorry for late response. They are connected via fiber and this resolution resolved it. Thanks
