Tapelibrary Quantum Scalar i40

Hi !!

We are an integrator Solutions at Brazil.

We have a client who bought a Quantum Tapelibrary i40, and needs to connect to a switch "Brocade 4 / 24 SAN Switch for HP c-Class BladeSystem." The question is: Is there compatibility between these two products??
Where can I check this compatibility??

Thanks ..

I'm not 100% surely, but to 95% you cannot connect a Tape Library Direct to Blade Switches.

Probable have other User here some experience, but other is unkown to me.

Hello,

Can you tell me which W2K3 driver version did you install for your Brocade BR-415 HBA? Does Symantec Backup Exec 2010 have any patches that you need to pre-install for Windows 2003 server?

I think he can, if the Blade module is a switch, basicaly the blade module is an oem brocade 300 series ( or so CMIW ) you can create zoning to on the blade switch, so my opinion it should work.
