MSL6030 FC Win2K

I am planning to connect an MSL6030 to a SAN Switch 2/16EL. The HP OV Data Protetor Cell Manager is installed on a Proliant DL380 G3 witch is connected to the SAN. I the Sales Builder, Win2K Advanced Server seems to be a prerequisit for Fibre Channel MSL6030. Is Win2K Advanced Server really a prerequisit or can I use the Server Version ? Some other servers on the SAN are WIn NT4 and Win2K Server, can I back-up them using HP OV Data Protector thrue the SAN ?
Thank U.

Mohamed,

The MSL6030 works with a normal Win2K server as well throuh a SAN.

You need an advances server if you want to use a MSCS cluster.

You can take the backup through the SAN provided you've got Unix/NAS/SAN drive licenses for DataProtector.

best regards,
Kurt

Thank you very much Kurt,
What about the NT4 servers (second question).

Well, I am not Kurt, but, according to the EBS matrix they are supported, too.

Sure the NT servers will work as well.

DP is for sure supported on Win NT4 (using the LAN with a SCSI Library directly connected to the cell manager). My question is about a SAN library and a LAN free-backup.

Re: MSL6030 FC Win2K

At some of my customers, I'm taking a LAN-free backup of NT servers with DP.

The NT4 servers have of course a media agent for the LTO2 library and this is the only requirement for a LAN free backup. So it works.
