Zoning Aix to Netbackup 5230

Hi guys,

I just create a zone between AIX (LPAR), 5230 appliance and a storage  like this

As you can the AIX server has two FC adapter each one belongs to a zone,but sometimes I lose visibility from netbackup so I have to go to the client and run cfgmgr command or even restart clients services.

Then on AIX server I run some commands like this

root@PRECBPHCDB]:/usr/openv/netbackup/bin>lsdev -Cc tape

The output Im getting is:

rmt0 Available 42-T1-01 Other FC SCSI Tape Drive

rmt1 Available 44-T1-01 Other FC SCSI Tape Drive

rmt2 Available 44-T1-01 Other FC SCSI Tape Drive

[root@PRECBPHCDB]:/usr/openv/netbackup/bin>tail

It is normal to get "Other FC SCSI Tape drive". Should I install a Veritas driver o something like that?

No you don't need a special driver. The appliance emulates a very old (Archive Python) tape drive for use as the FT tape drive.
