I have a need to be able to share a tape drive between partitions. I have used this functionality in the past but do not know how it was technically accomplished. in other words what cards are required in each partition and what kind of system/drive configuration needs to occur.
In the past I have had a swappable connector in the primary drive. I have verified off the active drive and an operator moved the connection to the other drive. Then vary on the device it moved to and use the tape drive.
Can any assist with the technical aspects of cards, cabling and configuration?
