Hi,

 

Never seen 'channel zoning', don't you 'mean Fibre Channel zoning'?

Can you post the link where you've seen the concept of 'channel zoning'?

 

 

When it comes to Tape zoning, the best practice is to use single HBA zoning and isolate disk drives from tapes by using different zones.

 

Rgds,

Felipon
