First, you need to have at least one supported Qlogic HBA in order to
configure FT media server.
You can't/won't use that one as initiator due to the fact that it has to be
marked as target by NetBackup.
During FT media server configuration NetBackup needs to temporarily unload
qla2xxx module which causes to lose SAN connectivity
So, it's not clear what HBA (brand/model) you have.
