SAN and tape library

Hi,

I have MSL6000 and DL-380 Server, last week we installed Brocade 8/24 switch and want to connect all devices using this switch.

I am able to view MSL6000 on server when directly connected to server. but when i connect it via brocade switch it is not visible to server.

Even without zone and with zone its not visible to server.

Re: SAN and tape library

I assume you have an (internal) NSR card in the library - you need to create a mapping in order to allow access from the server.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: SAN and tape library

Hi

Like Torsten said, you must do mapping inside NSR between SCSI addresses and WWN.

Otherwise, you test that from Brocade you see both devices correctly.
