MSL2024 share between two servers

Hi all,

Does anyone know if sharing this library between two servers via scsi is supported? I have done similar a similar set up in the past using the good old SureStore 2/20s and it worked fine. And of course, Netbackup SSO will be used.

Re: MSL2024 share between two servers

It should work but we never tried it any any of the parallel SCSI testing and as such is not officially supported. We have them running that way with fibre channel drives with no problems.

It will be a little different from the old 2/20s because the library is only available as a LUN behind one of the drives so the drive hosting the library will have to be visible to both hosts but one host could be configured to not use that drive.

I agree that Iwould not configure it that way, and it might work... but you can put the MSAL 2024 on the network and then you don't have to connect it to 2 different servers.

For network backups you need the N120 NSR:
