If you need to use the same set of tape drives to back up more than one storage system, you can save the tape alias information in a file. You can then propagate the aliases to multiple storage systems.
- To propagate tape aliases to multiple storage systems, create a file named tape_alias containing the tape alias information.
storage unalias -a
storage alias st0 8.6
storage alias st1 8.7
storage alias mc0 8.1
- Copy the file to the root volume of each storage system.
- Execute the following command on each storage system:
root_volume_name specifies the root volume.
All the storage systems contain the same configuration information.
Note: To ensure that multiple storage systems assign the same alias to a tape drive or medium changer, you can type the same set of storage alias commands on each storage system.
