Quantum RDX8000 with 2 Backup Exec Media Servers

I have a Symantec Backup Exec 2010 server backing up to a Quantum RDX8000 via iSCSI.

Because BE2010 is having issues with VMware backups Symantec support is suggesting going with BE2012. I have setup a second media server and want to use the same Quantum  device for storage (at least for testing purposes). When I try to configure iSCSI on new media server I get:

"The target does not have enough resources to process the request"

Does this mean what it sounds like? Media server 1 has its hooks into the disks so media server 2 can go pound sand?

Thanks.

I was wondering if the issue was with server missing the request?

Do you have many shares active on this server or server you are connecting to?

Frankly, I think what I am trying to do is just not possible (or wise). Apparently iSCSI is not a sharing protocol and just like you would not connect two SCSI controllers to a single SCSI disk I cannot connect two iSCSI servers to a single storage unit.

I think I will have to bite the bullet and take my Backup Exec 2010 server off line and start using BE2012. Can't wait.

Thanks.

I am a little confused on your setup. Your tape drive is connected to a physical host correct. For your media servers are you mapping the same LUN to both your new and old media servers. If so, is not going to work. Only one servers can active read/write to a volume. The only time you are map a volume to multiple server and have read/write access is using Windows 2012 Cluster Share Volumes..

RDX8000 is a disk based system. Regardless, this is a moot issue as Symantec could not get services for BE2012 on new server up and running. They suggested doing an in place upgrade on the 2010 server which is what I am going to do.

Thanks for the input.
