    Hi

    I have ran in to a brick wall and need some help please? I have a 3584 library split into 2 logical partitions. The one we use for production backups and the other half we use for backing up a Celerra NS960 with NDMP. After we added a S54 expansion and enabled the ALMS feature I am struggling to mount tapes for the NDMP backups.

    I think the problem could be caused by the 2 tape drives that are zoned to the Celerra. With the original config there appeared 2 drives and a tape library as seen below,

    *** OLD CONFIG **** Scsi Device Table
    name addr type info
    ggk01 c0t1l0 disk 5 042810001000CKM00092500265
    gk161 c16t1l11 disk 5 04281B001B00CKM00092500265
    misc2 c32t0l1 misc IBM ULT3580-TD3 73P5
    tape1 c32t0l0 tape IBM ULT3580-TD3 73P5
    ttape1 c64t0l0 tape IBM ULT3580-TD3 73P5

    gk01 c0t0l0 disk 5 042800000000CKM00092500265

    But now after the ALMS feature was enabled I can see 4 drives and 2 tape libraries.

    Does anyone know why this happened? The zoning did not change either.

    Thanks for any help...
