Re: How to Configure Tape Library in SAN Brocade 300

Hi

 

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??

 

Thanks

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.
