Required Setup
General Notes
  • ** Spectra Logic supports major FC switch vendors with FC drives attached to Spectra Logic Libraries this page reflects a general support position from Spectra Logic and not all equipment has been through a TapeSan Certification process
  • The libraries above are also supported in direct connect configurations (no switch) however in that case, library must be set to hard addressing, and loop mode.
  • ** The FAS250 Platform is only supported with DataONTAP 6.4.1 and later; and only supports a copper connection - direct connect or through the 24/2800 family of switches only.
