How to setup the 7800 as an extender like M3000

Hi Forum


On a remote location we have some tape drives connected to a 7800, this 7800 is connected to another 7800 (throgh WAN) at the local location.

The 7800 at the local location is suppoesed to be connected to some Brocade switches (FICON). What we would like to do is simply just to extend the tape drives so when we connect one port from the 7800 to the director the director thinks it is a tape tape drive. So like a extender.

Can this be done ?.

If yes what are the commands to use.


I hope you can help


Vety Best Regards
