Proper Zoning For a NEO2000 FC Tape Library

  • 1.  Proper Zoning For a NEO2000 FC Tape Library

    Posted 10-23-2014 01:53 PM

    Hi,

     

    I have a Brocade 200e switch and I have 3 NEO2000 FC tape libraries.  What I would like to confirm is the proper zoning methods for these with my backup server.

     

    Each NEO2000 has 2 FC write heads FC1 and FC2 so what I had planned on doing was zone as follows:

     

    Zone1_NEO2000-1

    • FC1_Port_1
    • FC2_Port_2
    • Backup Server_Port3

    Zone2_NEO2000-2

    • FC1_Port_4
    • FC2_Port_5
    • Backup Server_Port3

    Zone3_NEO2000-3

    • FC1_Port_6
    • FC2_Port_7
    • Backup Server

    This makes the most sense to me but wanted to confirm that before I start.  Thank you for your help!!

    best practices is One Target / Initiator

     

    i.e.

     

    Zone1_NEO2000-1_port_1

        FC1_Port_1
        Backup Server_Port3

    Zone1_NEO2000-1_port_2

        FC2_Port_2
        Backup Server_Port3

     

    the same for remaining Zone
