configure Netapp with data domain VTL




I am configuring a vtl with 2 LTO5 drives on data domain 6800 with the AFF200.

I zoned both storage system. From the data domain I can see the NetApp target port and the VTL is enabled.


on the NetApp side I can see the VTL nor the drives.  In the supported  drives list on the NetApp I can see that the Ultrium lto5 is supported.

the NetApp is using 2 FC ports for the bloack access and I am using the same working port to configure the VTL.


could you help please on how to configure?



Check for the FC ports config. I think they are not configured as initiators.
