Currently I haven't done any tape encryption.
We have a TS3200 with 4 HH FC drives along with a fiber switch.
All 4 drives are available to both LPARs, no more DLPARing he drive around.

Don't I wish I could have new hardware. We just got a generator approved that will power our whole building.

I dearly would love to go to 7.2 to test the Row/Column Access control stuff. Audit stuff is thinking that we must encrypt data on the screens, but I'm working with canned code, no source. Our DR box will go no higher than 7.1, so for a while I am stuck.

Our 2900 is scsi, no fiber anywhere.

Tks for the thoughts.
