Sun Solaris 10 on 280R & Brocade 3250 Attachment and Sun Solaris 10 on 280R & Brocade 3250 Attachment and Configuration

Subject: Sun Solaris 10 on 280R & Brocade 3250 Attachment and
Configuration

Server: Sun 280R
Card: *SUN* 2342 Dual Port HBA (uses QLC driver)
Switch: Brocade Silkworm 3250.

I need some assistance getting a Sun 280R to see tape drives attached to
a Brocade 3250 switch.

[switch] -> box (port 0)
-> tape1 (port 1)
-> tape2 (port 2)
-> tape3 (port 3)
-> tape4 (port 4)

Here are my devices according to a Brocade Silkworm 3820.
I am not sure I am adding the zones correctly.

Basically, I want one zone per drive:

DRIVE1<->ZONE1
DRIVE2<->ZONE2
DRIVE3<->ZONE3
DRIVE4<->ZONE4

However, my first step is just to get the Solaris 10 box to see all four
tape drives.

Here are the devices:

On the Solaris side of the fence:

I believe c3 and c4 is the Sun QLogic (QLC) 2342 adapter.

Does anyone have a good doc for attaching Fiber Channel Tape Drives to a
brocade switch and then getting Solaris to see the devices? :)

Thanks!

Justin.
