Tape drives zoning
I have a question about tape drive zoning. Should the tape drives be zoned to master and media servers or just media servers. We currently configured as below.
Library - Zoned only to master
Tape drives - Zoned to 2 media servers.
We have problems with backup not working. We are using Data domain, and the backup works fine for that. We need to make the ndmp backup work, so we have to have tape drives zoned properly. We have zoned in the filer to see the drives also. Please advice.
Apologies for wasting a lot
Apologies for wasting a lot of time...
Lets get back to basics... You did not provide any info of how configuration from NBU point of view was done...
What is make/model of the filer?
Have you verified that tape drives are visible on the filer? (See NDMP Appliance Info doc.)
License keys for library based tape drives as well as SSO on media servers?
NDMP credentials added to media server to be used as NDMP host?
Device config wizard used to select Master, Media Servers as well as filer when devices were configured?
Have you confirmed that Inventory is up-to-date as per Mark's earlier suggestion?
Please provide output of following commands on the media server that is configured as NDMP host:
