LTO2 TAPE change from scsi to fibre channel or sas

hello, i use right now lto 2 tapes to write data. my lto 2 drive connect to the computer with scsi cabell but it wont last for long time. Can i use SAS or fibre channel instead of the scsi (I must remain with lto 2 drives and tapes but need to change the communication through the scsi so i need to find other component). Please share with me if you have idea's and if i can use SAS or fibre channel to connect to the lto 2 drive instead of scsi. 

 

Thank you very much !

Re: LTO2 TAPE change from scsi to fibre channel or sas

the connector is bound to the drive. scsi, fc, sas and usb is available for certain drives. to change the connection type, you need to change the drive. fc is for library drives only.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
