attach one drive to windows server in MSL library

I have MSL 6000 library with two LTO3 drive and NSR configured.

One zone with NSR and two windows 2003 server.

I have created maps and allocated robot and one drive to one windows 2003 server this work perfect.

Porblem
======
I have attached one dirve to another windows 2003 server. But the server could not see the dive . I have Qlogic with SCSIport driver installed.

Any suggestion.

Re: attach one drive to windows server in MSL library

With a backup software that can manage this environment your second server is not able to control the robot.

If this server doesn't see the drive, you should check the NSR and zoning again.

Hope this helps!

Thanks

Zoing is ok the reason I say this is.

If I map changer and the second drive to this server

I can see the drive and changer.

But if i have one dirve only in my map then it does not show the drive.

Can I attach only one drive to one server ?

Remember that windows 2003 will not scan the bus if there is no LUN0 on the bus, so be sure when you create the dedicated map for a windows server to set the first device (drive) with LUN 0

Meloni

Thanks

I do agree what you suggested.

I can not allocate lun0 to one drive.

lun0 is taken by robot or NSR if we do select bus/target or target/bus mapping.

ok, so the solution is to build a new dedicated map for the w2k3 server (you can add, move, remove manualy the devices when you create the map, not only select Bus/target priority) or make a single map that fit all the hosts need
