We are using Syncsort Backup Express. We have Netware 6.5 sp6 clusters. All
servers have 4 fibre channel links to the tape library through the SAN
switch. They are HP Ultrium 2 tape drives. Syncsort uses nwtape for the
driver. Most of the Netware servers see and bind the tape devices fine and
list devices shows all four device paths. However some servers consistently
fail to bind 1 of the devices. If you unload and reload nwtape none of them
will bind and you get mode sense errors. On reboot 3 will bind and the other
one consistently fails to bind. Since non SAN attached devices use these
paths also we need to consistently get all bindings working. Any suggestions
would be appreciated
