ESL 712-E internal cabling manual for FC version needed

Documentation about ESL libraries is hard to find and if, it's the SCSI version. I have an Utrium 4 Fibre Channel model here and I'm not sure if all the connections are correct.

Could someone provide me the FC version of the installation guide? Or a maintenance manual?

I'm a bit confused because there are models with FC switches on the right side, next to the cluster controllers and there are models where the FC cables go up to the FC switch box (?).
And where do the internal Ethernet connections go?

A lot of questions..... I hope someone can help.

Re: ESL 712-E internal cabling manual for FC version needed

You should have ethernet connections at the drives and an ethernet switch inside the rack. This is for internal network and connects the Interface manager, the library controller, the interface controllers and the drives. FC connections are made directly from the drives to the external FC switch. Presentation is made via Command View TL at the secure manager running on the Interface Manager of the library,


Hope this helps!
