Yes, I see now that the "autochanger sharing" option is not what I want.

One other thing I'm not clear on from the docs. I can set up the drives
for sharing (once they tell me the device names on the Windows nodes).
How do I back them up? Do I just set them up as clients and they will
automatically use their own drive paths?

Brian,
Just follow and answer the jbconfig questions.
After the initial jukebox selection answer yes to the shared drive
question.
You will the be prompted for each logical path of each physical drive.
You should terminate the answers for each physical drive with a blank
line.
Your answers will be:
/dev/nst0
host1:\\.\Tape0
Host2:\\.\Tape0
...
You should use the inquire command on each host to find out the logical
drive names and correlate them by their serial number.
Except the multiple answers it is quite straight forward.

Subject: [Networker] Setting up Windows Dedicated Storage
Nodes with Linux Networker server

I'm hoping some of you can show an old Networker dog some new
tricks...I
am unfamiliar with the setup of shared drives and storage nodes.

I'm converting a standard Networker installation into one that will be
sharing drives in an autochanger over a SAN with some dedicated
networker storage nodes. The Networker server (Network Edition, 7.1.1
but can be upgraded if necessary) driving the autochanger is
Linux - the
storage nodes (4) are Windows (running Exchange). The Autochanger is a
PV-132T with two SDLT320 drives.

I've got the licenses for DDS and the Dedicated Storage Nodes
intalled.

It appears from the documentation that I need to run
jbconfig, and will
need to supply the paths that each of the storage nodes sees
the drives
as - can someone give me an example of how this would look
for a windows
storage node?

Also in the manual it mentions sharing the autochanger - and that
jbconfig would prompt me differently. Should I be following the
directions for the drive sharing, or the autochanger sharing? I think
the latter, but jbconfig doesn't prompt me as it seems to
show it should.

Any help with this is mucho appreciated.

Also, give only two drives, and 5 storage nodes (including the current
server and its clients), will I have scheduling issues?
Should I stagger
them?

-Brian
