We currently have our Exchange 2003 cluster backing up directly to our HP tape library over fibre (via our brocades).
Our new 2007 cluster is going to be virtualised/SAN attached... so how do people out there get a VM server to "see" other worldwide names when there is no HBA involved/installed (i.e. the servers are now VMs)?? is there such a thing as a virtual HBA?? I would think that the servers need some way to communicate with other fibre connected devices... I
know we can snapshot the SANs etc... but it would make life easier i would think if we can still do a full backup of Exchange to tape.
