nsr port mapping

Hello,

I am trying to create port mappings on the nsre1200 in an 6060 tape lib.
The field for creating custom indexed maps is greyed out.
I have tried virtually everything.
I ended up making everything visible to all hosts and disabling the changer under windows for the clients.

Does anyone have any suggestion ?
firmware level nsr = 5.3xx

thx

Re: nsr port mapping

Isn't there a default map (indexed) that you can modify? Have you made the window as large as possible? I haven seen that certain buttons vanish when it is too small.

I would present the changer as LUN:0 and then add the tape drives without any holes in the LUN address space, because I have been told many backup programms expect it this way.

Re: nsr port mapping

thanks for your reply,
i have tried to change the def map, and any other possible combination.
it will not let me "add" any custom maps per server, so that i can fill the map with only the drives (lan free backup).
the bckup srv will then see all the lun's ofcourse.

Re: nsr port mapping

Hi,

I have the same problem, it seems not to be possible, creating new maps. As I needed only two maps I used the Auto Assigned map for the backup server (having acess to all LUNs) and the Port 0 map for the clients (having acess to the drive LUNs only).

Re: nsr port mapping

try connecting to the serial port and using the serial interface. I've noticed some option in the serial interface are not available via the web interface.

Re: nsr port mapping

Don't be too hard to yourself. The NSRs are pretty complicated little beasts. It is easy to overlook something and get bitten back. Outch!

True indeed,
You start to think... and think...
untill it hurts and you overlook the obvious solution i guess.
i solved it once like this already, but just forgot ?
