I need help to confirm if following configuration is supported. DP 5.5 cell is running on a W2K3 standalone server with SCSI connectivity to library. (DP server has no fiber card). Other SAN attached servers would benefit accessing library directly through NSR to conduct lan free backups. Is this configuration supported ? If so, how should library and NSR cabling look like and tape drives terminated ? Thanks
Sounds like something you need to ask the hardware folks. What you are trying to set up is a multi-initiator configuration. Not something I would bother with, and something you would need to clearly confirm the HW and OS levels support.
In DP, it's just a library with multipathing, looking exactly the same as if the CM had SAN connectivity.
