1)are the tape drive native fiber or connected to Fiber-to-SCSI bridge?
if your drive is native fiber, i would look into fabric switch or HBA card setting. It look to me that your problems is negotiating the same protocol between HBA and Fabric switch. I had a situation where one HBA was set to arbitrated loop and another was set to Point-to-Point, and i was not getting any connectivity, and yes, it was working on direct fiber cable connect.
hope it helps.
