Netbackup appliance 5340 tape library configuration

Hi 

In my environment, we had a 5340 Netbackup appliance. It is already connected with two tape libraries IBM and DELL Via SAN Switch. We are planning to add one more tape library.

all HBA cards are used form appliance end it is connected to my san switch.

free ports are available only from san switch.

How to add the one more tape library to the appliance.

I will lay the FC cables from the new tape library to san switch and add the wwwn and wwpn to the existing san zoning group. after that drives are visible from appliance end or not
