Hi Simon,

I have it configured and it works quite well, especially on the really big clients. It works just with Sun Solaris or Linux NetBackup Media Servers, you need to have a separate Qlogic card better with more then one port, and to have zoning done properly on your fiber switches, on the clients you would need to discover SCSI tape targets as well, and install PBX. I can see the backups run faster then over the network, as it runs over the fiber. I did not build any new servers, I used the existing Sun Solaris NetBackup Media servers, but as I use just Emulex cards, I had to buy Qlogic cards.

Also, don't mix the SAN Client with the SAN Media Server, completely different things.

Hi All
Currently looking into the SAN Client / Fibre Transport clients.
Wondered if anyone else has implemented this on 6.5 and any pros cons?

While readin the SS Guide - it seems to imply you need a "Media" Server, but does not really explain if you can use a "Master" Server for this (even though a Master / Media Server is on the same box)? From the looks, it seems that I need an FT Media Server to handle this !

Any comments would be appreicated, even if it is a "dont do it"  :-)
