Couple questions regarding implementing CDL.

I have an AIX 5.2 master server running 4.5 FP8 with a scsi attached L700
tape silo, tape drives and master server are fiber attached to SAN.
8 Media servers running SSO, also fiber attached to a SAN.

All of this runs fine.

We just purchased an EMC CDL 700.  I want to add the CDL to our current


Im not sure how to add another robotic device and path to our environment.
Right now I have a scsi ovpass for the L700.  Do I need to create a fiber
ovpass for the CDL?

Im guessing I need to create a new robot for the CDL, according to FP8
documentation EMC disk is an available robotic type, however EMC disk does
not display as one of the choices when I try to create a new robot?

Do I need to add another HBA on the master server and attach it to the SAN
for the CDL?
