We have just upgrqaded to BUE 2012 from BUE 2010 to find that it still cannot support twin SAN fabics (i.e. when you have 2 fabrics to the same tape heads to provide resilliance).

As per :

Please could you put this in the next version.  It is something we need for Enterprise support.

...I've used 2 separate Brocade switches (HP StorageWorks SAN Switch 4/16) to which the BE media server (ProLiant DL385 G5) and tape library (HP StorageWorks MSL6060) were attached and never had an issue. All 4 drives were in use at the same time. Obviously if the SAN switch to which the robotics is connected fails, then you're dead anyway.

This isn't so much a support issue from Symantec but a hardware limitation!
