How will the data move between those clients and the drives? FC?
then your clients are media server, not just clients.

So data will move from those clients trough the network to
the master server which will write them to tape trough FC.
Am I right?
Now, if you allocate drives to server permanently, ie. whatever
the time, server s1 can access to drive d1, and drive d& can only
be accessed from s1 then no SSO involved.
If this is dynamic, ie. some drive can be reached from at least
two servers (machine with NB code on it), then SSO is needed.
I'm not sure I understood what you mean, please correct me
