    StoreOnce technology. HP StoreOnce G3 models The following products belong to the HP StoreOnce G3 Backup system family; they are also referred to as single-node StoreOnce models, in comparison to the HP StoreOnce B6000 Backup system which is a multi-node StoreOnce product. (This node distinction is important when configuring replication and Catalyst copy jobs and understanding target and source IP addresses.)

  • Page 23: Identifying Network Ports Available

    All systems have two 1GbE ports that are identified as eth0 (LAN port 1) and eth1 (LAN port 2). HP StoreOnce 4400 Series Backup systems have four 1GbE ports, of which eth0 and eth1 are used and eth2 and eth3 are unused. They also have an additional two 10GbE ports that are identified as eth4 and eth5.
  • Page 24: Network Configuration Examples Not Using The Wizard

    Backup system is connected via LAN Port 1. For example, this might be the case with HP StoreOnce 42xx and 44xx Backup systems if the customer is backing up mainly to FC virtual tape libraries.

    It is possible to create a network configuration that defines as many subnets as there are ports available on the HP StoreOnce Backup system HP StoreOnce 26xx and 42xx Backup systems have two 1GbE ports and may be connected to two separate networks. This may be useful if company policy requires a StoreOnce function to be restricted to a specific network.

    The tape drive is configurable as an LTO-2, LTO-3, LTO-4 or LTO-5 device. This is the default behavior of the tape drive and there is no need and no way to change it on the HP StoreOnce Backup system. It is important not to confuse emulation type with cartridge size. Emulation type is totally independent from cartridge size.

  • Page 34 When you run the iSCSI Initiator manually, new devices have a status of Inactive on the Targets tab. You must log on to the appropriate targets for your host. Remember that each library has at least two devices and you must log onto each one separately. If the emulation type you have selected allows more drives, there will be a target device for each drive.
