About FT media servers

A NetBackup FT media server is a NetBackup media server on which the Fibre Transport services are activated. NetBackup FT media servers accept connections from SAN clients and send data to the disk storage.

The host bus adapters (HBAs) that accept connections from the SAN clients use a special NetBackup target mode driver to process FT traffic.

The media server FT service controls data flow, processes SCSI commands, and manages data buffers for the server side of the FT pipe. It also manages the target mode driver for the host bus adaptors.

Requires the SAN Client license.
