Notice that you have the Routers 2108-R03 and the initial
post was for the gateway model 2108-G07.

The 2108-R03 are suppported, the 2108-G07 are not.

Not supported...?!?!?  Ours works great!

We use this to connect our LTO drives to our SAN:
IBM 2108-R03 SAN Data Gateway Routers (3)
IBM 3584 LTO Ultrium Ultra-Scalable Tape Library (1 library w/5 SCSI
drives)
McData ED-5000 Director Class Fibre Channel Switch (1)

All we had to do is create an "LTO Zone" on the switch.  The only things in
that zone are the three SAN Data Gateway Routers and three of the four
Fibre
Channel Adapters on our TSM server (RS/6000 H80).   The other FCA in the
TSM
server goes to the ED-5000, but it's outside the "LTO Zone".  Instead of
seeing the LTO drives, it sees our Shark...

The SAN Data Gateway does not support the LTO.  According to IBM you
need the SAN Data Router.

I have experience with McData (rather than Brocade) SAN equipment, but
my
first guess would be a ZONING issue within the SAN software on the
Brocade
switch.  Our 2108's know nothing about what kind of equipment our SAN
has.
In fact, our 2108's, our IBM Shark, and all of the individual Fibre
Channel
clients are all completely unaware of the McData equipment in the
middle.
All they see is the SCSI equipment at the other end (in their zone).
Some
servers see disk (from the Shark), some see tape drives (from our LTO
library), and our TSM server sees both.

Hi

We have a SAN Data Gateway 2108-G07 installed.
An AIX server is connected through a brocade SAN switch to the SAN Data
Gateway. Connected to this Gateway are 4 LTO devices.
We seem to have installed the 2108-G07 ok , but nevertheless the LTO
drives
can not be "seen" from the AIX server !!!!!!?
any ideas ??????

Does this brocade switch needs to be identified on the SAN Data Gateway
(via
StorWatch - SAN Data Gateway Specialist software) and the AIX server  as
well ???
any additional comments ??

thanks in advance
