Keith, yes, the TSM library client needs a FC connection to the drives yes
that you want it to use.

- imagine a library manager managing 80+ drives for 10+ other servers, and

For as far as I know the data doesn't move via the LM, it just mounts the
drives on request, the LM is not in the data path.

This is true, but what does it have to do with a TSM LM? :-)

I feel like I am missing something here, what's going on!? :-)

The problem is with things such as SA's, they can't run on a library client
for as far as I know.
