SUMMARY: JNI FC Drivers for Tape and Disk

The original question is whether it is possible to have JNI configurations
in a mixed topology (fcaw.conf configuration that handles both fabric and
point-to-point). The idea is to have a disk subsystem attach to a server
point-to-point AND a tape-area-network is attached via fabric. Many of you
thought this is not possible and some have thoughts. An actual check with
JNI confirms that indeed it is possible with a suggestion that the EzFibre
utility is the best way to do this...
