Re: Need help in Autoloader SSL1016

Hi,

Look for a 3rd party software which is capable for utilizing SCSI shared devices.

For instance, Netvault from Bakbone has with this kind of features. They called this Dynamically Shared Devices or DSD. I tried this before from one of my client and it works even if the operating system is different for both of them (at any of the 2 servers).

Some standard hardware condition (any 3rd party software) are as follows:

1. SCSI devices (controllers and tape boxs) must have unique SCSI IDs.

2. HBA cards (SCSI Controllers)must have the same model and specs. [(adaptec ultra320 x2)]

Hope this help,

Allan
