Hello, I would like to backup the clients directly on the Netbackup Appliance 5220 through FC SAN. The client only has one FC-HBA (single port) already connected with a Storage Array. Can I use the same FC-HBA to backup on the Appliance 5220 (I will add a dedicated backup zone). Do I need to add a dedicated FC-HBA for each SAN-Client? Thanks for your feedback. Jacques
