200-16E & TS3100


I have setup two fabrics with 4 switches, and all is currently working well, thanks to some help from TechHelp24 guiding me.

I now have to add an IBM TS3100 in to the setup. When I connect the the tape drive, the brocade sees it correctly.

I want to backup data from 3 sans ( VS-01, SQL-01,SQL-02 ),

Do I need to create an alias / zone for the tape drive and add the sans to it in the zone?Smiley Indifferent

or add the port the tape drive is in to the current Zone, for the Sans. We are looking at Tivoli to handle the tape backup but I assume the drive will need to have access to the sans to back them up ?
