it is possible to attache LTO 4 FC library tu VM on ESX 5 using NPIV ou other way

RE: Attach FC Tape to VM

Great article itsp1965

Just want to note that I have deployed option two (adding a tape/library as a SCSI device).  By doing so, it cut the through-put of the backup job in half and made the solution worthless.  Doesn't help much if an 8 hour backup job increases to 16 hours.  I did not try the pass-through choice (option one in the posted article), the CPUs in the servers I was given to work with did not support the feature.
