I have also same concern, regarding configuring NDMP drive in filer using FC Tape drives,
we have FAS3020 and Neo Overland 4200 with 4 x LTO4 Native FC drives and we are using MCData 4500 FC SAN Switch, we want to connect the four drives to FAS3020 as NDMP drive. Neo Overland robot were already configured in our Netbackup media server ( we have a separate FC SAN switch MCData 4700 zone with media server and the neo overland robot).
My problem now is my filer cannot see the tape drives. I used port 0d in my filer as initiator and make a zone in McData 4500 with the four drive and NetApp as member of the zone. I also enabled OSMS in MCdata, aslo neo overland 4200 drive config topology were set to force point to point as speciified in
to but still no tape present on the system.
I also tried to configure the port as target port (as specified in
Ive also checked the following documents
but still with no luck my filer cannot see the tape drive.
What else do I need to configure?
