Ms5026sl & storageworks FCTC

We actually have an EBS solution using the 35/70 libray and the Fibre Channel Tape Controller. We will like to upgrade to the new MSL5626 line.
I will like to know if Msl5026 could operate conected to the san over the storageworks FCTC.
Ebs software qualifies both products independently but i didnt find any docs that relate both products.

You might find yourself with an unsupported configuration, that doesn't mean it will not work, it just means it's unsupported.

The right thing to do is to check the EBS compatibility matrix :

Re: Ms5026sl & storageworks FCTC

The first time the MSL is listed in the attached matrix was June 2001, and it was tested with the newer MDR. FCTC had been end-of-life by that time. The FCTC WAS qualified with HVD versions of the ESL library and I believe that MSLs are LVD only.
