AIX 7.1 boxes.
Node A - Master/Media server with fiber attached LTO-5 library.
Node B - Media server/client with tape drives  in the Node-A library zoned so 
Node B can see the drives.

Setup a regular flat file type backup for Node B and tell the policy to use 
Node B as the media server. Kick off the backup and the job starts but sits 
there "Mounting" for hours. I kill it...cycle Netbackup on both the 
client/media server and the Master/Media. I check bp.conf file, I check 
tpconfig, I check a bunch of stuff and no such luck.
This is a new setup, master/media server works and runs perfectly. Node B and 
Node C work perfectly as long as they are not set to use themselves as the 
media server.

What am I missing?
