How many target VTL in same Zone or Alias?

Hello all,


I know the Zoning Brocade recomendation is on single initiator one single target in one zone.

But what about Virtual Tape drives? Do we still use same rule or can we have single initiator multi taget in same zone?

Well, I always considered that single-initiator-multi-target zones are possible for multiple ports of the same storage device, and even for several different storage devices of the same product family. My customers are doing this.
Also note that with FOS 7.4+ you can do multi-initiator-multi-target zones using Peer Zoning.
