san - shared tapedrives problem

Discussion in 'Storage' started by Wouter Goderis, Sep 17, 2003.

  1. We have an ATL library with 5 drives spread over 3 bridges.

    When we reboot the servers attached to the san, we sometimes loose one
    or more tapedrives (not all drives are detected on all servers)

    A simple rescan on windows solves this problem ....
    but checking if the tapedrives are detected or not after each server
    reboot is of course a bit crazy..

    environment :

    windows 2000 servers
    qlogic hba's with persistent binding
    brocade switces 38xx
    ATL library with ATO bridges

    Anyone who has seen this kind of behaviour before , any hints on where
    the problem could be situated (hardware , software ?) ?

    Kind Regards,
