View a Fibre Channel Device

Use the procedure below to add a fibre channel (FC) device. Before adding a FC device, first configure the Host Bus Adapter (HBA) card so you can view the device. Use the fs_scsi -p command to make sure you can view your devices over FC. FC devices include tape libraries, individual drives, or RAID disk.

  • Type the /usr/cvfs/bin/fs_scsi -p command to make sure that the necessary devices can be viewed over FC.
    • To view tape libraries, access the StorNext GUI to view your tape libraries.
    • To view individual drives or RAID LUNs, access either the StorNext or SNFS GUI.

To add a disk, see File System Tasks. To add a tape drive to a configured library, see Configure Libraries.
