    Using a fiber channel tape library in a virtual machine

      Hi everyone,

       

       

      i've been asked if it's possible to use a fiber channel tape library as a device of a virtual machine running on an esx 3.5 host that has SAN connectivity; i know that you can map a phisycal fiber channel adapter to a virtual machine but this means that it can be used by the virtual machine only, if i am correct.

       

       

      This is a new subject to me so i'm curious about all the options i have and all the limitations so that i can decide what is the best thing to do.

       

       

      Thanks in advance.
