Hi,
No cross blade routing is allowed So the masking will only work within
each blade. This doesn't prevent you from presenting 4 tapes drives down
1 FC port.
To present more tape drives to a host you need to zone them in at the
switch side.
What version of the firmware are you using ?

Hope this helps
Gideon

Subject: [Veritas-bu] Scalar i2000 FC question


I've been given the task of taking a used fibre channel Scalar i2000 and
putting it into production. I have no documentation except for the users
guide I've downloaded from Quantum's web site.

Does each FC I/O blade operate as an independent FC switch? As a test I
have a host attached to the FC1 port on IO blade 3. The LUN masking
wizard only allows me to map tape drives attached to IO blade 3, but
cannot map or see tape drives on IO blade 4 or 5.  Is there a way to
make LUN masking work across IO blades, or are connections limited to
the same IO blade?
