San Media Server
Can somebody explain what would be required with following setup...
I have a Sun Solaris master/media server which connects to a fibre library with 2 x lto fibre drives. Instead of pushing the backups over the network I would like to make the two san attached m4000 servers (which are netbackup clients at present) into SAN media servers and backup over fibre.
Firstly, I assume I will need the following licenses:
· 2 x San Enterprise Media Server or is this just an Enterprise Client ?
· SSO (As I will also be running network backups to the master/media server)
I then would like to know if you need a dedicated fibre port on the sun servers to write directly to the tape library, as I was concerned it needed a specific qlogic driver which might affect mounted luns? (At present we use the native solaris driver on the pci fibre channel card)
Also, I assume that you do need to configure the SAN Media client if it is already a SAN media server.
