NDMP setup error

We are trying to set up 2-way NDMP backups from an EMC VNX to 2 of our 6 SAN-attached LTO6 drives that we use for our normal TSM backups.

Library Name Drive Name Device Type On-Line
------------ ------------ ----------- -------------------
REMLIB DRIVE0 LTO Yes
REMLIB DRIVE1 LTO Yes
REMLIB DRIVE2 LTO Yes
REMLIB DRIVE3 LTO Yes
REMLIB DRIVE4 LTO Yes
REMLIB DRIVE5 LTO Yes

The library control path is currently via drive5. I was able to zone the drives, create the datamover, etc and the VNX gives us this info from "server_devconfig server_2 -list -scsi -nondisks":

Scsi Device Table
name addr type info
gk01 c0t0l0 disk 1 053307000020APM00141604335
gk161 c16t0l0 disk 1 053307000020APM00141604335

But I get errors when trying to
tsm: TSMA1A>define path server_2 drive5 srctype=datamover autodetect=yes destt=drive library=remlib device=c0t0l0
ANR1737E DEFINE PATH: Device name c0t0l0 specified is invalid.
ANS8001I Return code 3.

tsm: TSMA1A>define path server_2 drive5 srctype=datamover autodetect=yes destt=drive library=remlib device=gk161
ANR1737E DEFINE PATH: Device name gk161 specified is invalid.
ANS8001I Return code 3.

Do these device names look correct? Do I need to define a separate library definition? Separate drives?

Thanks!
