Just want to get things clear in my mind. I have a netbackup server with 6 HBA. I will only use 2 and I have 6 LTO6 tape drives and 4 LTO7 drives. Would i be correct in saying i would create two zones one for each server HBA (initiator) and the add 5 drives to each zone. Or would I create a zone per drive??

Best practice, you use single initiator ( HBA ) and multiple Target ( tape drives)on zone
Or use single initiator and two or three drives per zone. ( as tape drive is go offline bit frequently so you may reduce the RSCN to specific zone.
