MSL6060fc drivers

Dear ITRC memeber
I have HP MSL6060 2 LTO-4 Ultrium 1840 Drive 4Gb FC Library (AJ032A)connected to our Backup server DL360G7 with Qlogic 82Q PCI-e FC HBA Dual Port, through 8/24 SAN switch and my problem is that my server can not detect my MSL6060.
I have data protector V6.11 as well installed in the Backup server under Windows 2008R2 Enterprise edition.
I wonder it there are any drivers to setup the library or something els?
please advice?
Thanks in advance.

Regards
Adil

Dear All
I have accessed HP StorageWorks e1200-320 4G Interface Controller through web interface and I tried to discover fc port 0 (which is connected directly to my server), however nothing have been discovered.

but whenever I connect the library to SAN switch fc port can detect only my EVA HSV300

please see the attachment and advice
thanks in advance

Hi Adel,

the setup should be as follows.
1)connect TL to SAN switch
2)Connect backup Server to SAn switch
3)Create a Zone between server and TL NSR.
4)Go to NSL Web interface and create mapping of WWN for backup Server.

let us know if you need any more clarifications on the same.
Torsten.

Re: MSL6060fc drivers

You need to discover devices on the SCSI channel, not on the FC port.

Create a map!

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

Hi Torsten!

whenever I discover devices on the SCSI channel, it detect my MSL6060 tape library and 4 HP Ultrium 1840 tape drives, but I have never tried to create map for them, I'm going to try them after 2 hours from now and feed you back.

Many thanks all
