We're using ArcServe 11.1 SP3 for backups (NW 5.1 SP8) . . .
very shortly we will be Migrating to NW 6.5 SP8.

Also, we're looking at introducing a NAS solution for Daily backups,
but will still be backing up to tape for our Monthlies.

I've read that NW 6.5 supports iSCSI (also supported by ArcServe),
but there were problems, earlier on, with slow iSCSI communications
with NW 6.5. How do things stand with this issue under SP8?
Have the slowness issues been resolved? Is there a document
with recommended settings?

Also, what would be the best way of managing this connection?
(Direct/dedicated connection to the NAS via NIC?)

Many thanks,
