About configuring robot and drive control for Linux
NetBackup supports SCSI control and API control of robotic devices. SCSI control includes Fibre Channel Protocol (FCP), which is SCSI over Fibre Channel.
You must configure the control method, as follows:
NetBackup uses device files to configure control for SCSI tape devices, including robotic devices. (A robotic device in a library moves the media between storage slots and the drives in the library.)
API control over a LAN.
