200-16E & TS3100


I have setup two fabrics with 4 switches, and all is currently working well, thanks to some help from TechHelp24 guiding me.

I now have to add an IBM TS3100 in to the setup. When I connect the the tape drive, the brocade sees it correctly.

I want to backup data from 3 sans ( VS-01, SQL-01,SQL-02 ),

Do I need to create an alias / zone for the tape drive and add the sans to it in the zone?:|

or add the port the tape drive is in to the current Zone, for the Sans. We are looking at Tivoli to handle the tape backup but I assume the drive will need to have access to the sans to back them up ?
