MSL 2024 partitionned in two logical librairies and persistent binding

Hello !

 

We have a backup solution based on a MSL 2024 SAS autoloader partitionned as a two volume library.

The two logical libraries are connected to only one server thru a Smart Array P212 , so the server sees the two libraries.

 

Each logical library is managed by a backup application. The two backup applications are HP Data Protector and Microsoft DPM 2010. We have setup both backup apps to select their dedicated library/drive and disable/ignore the other.

 

However, it seems that DPM 2010 is quite unhappy after library reboots because the SCSITargetIDs get swapped :

example :

 

LL0 = 6/7.0.1

DRV0 = 6/7.0.0

 

LL1 = 6/7.1.1

DRV1 = 6/7.1.0

 

after reboot of the library :

 

LL0 = 6/7.1.1

DRV0 = 6/7.1.0

 

LL1 = 6/7.0.1

DRV1 = 6/7.0.0

 

Do you know and method to enable peristent binding  (i assume it is called like this) with HP ACU / CLI or any other tool ?

 

Thank you very much !
