Backup Exec Zoning
Hi All -
I have a very simple issue (which I am sure is very simple) but I am inherting issues from a former IT Admin and I dont have too much experience with it.
Basically I have my media server (BEX), my SAN, and my Tape library connected all to a fiber switch. These devices are the ONLY devices connected to the switch.
I have been having on going issues with my backup jobs and after working with symantec support they suggested to me that my tape library is the issue. My tape library vendor is telling me that my fiber switch is hte issue, which brings me to the zoning aspect.
How do I zone these devices so I can avoid any conflicts? Currently there are NO zones setup on my fiber switch and all 4 connections are talking to eachother properly (or so it would seem)
I have Port 1 - BEX Server
Port 2 - HBA from NAS (EMC)
Port 3 - Tape LIbrary robotic arm
Port 4 - Tape library Tape drive
The on-going issue I seem to have is that after a particular job (randomly) the tape does not eject from the drive. The tape remains locked. It isnt until I restart the tape library that I am able to eject the tape.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
