Before we went to a tape cat with all fiber we used a 4-way SCSI switch
for our tape drives.
I remember we had to go with extended length cables and they were very
expensive because they supported distance beyond the SCSI standard.
No other real problems that I remember.

Subject: A-B SCSI switch?
Has anybody used an A-B SCSI switch for sharing a LTO between two
Systems i (270/520)?
Any comments on your experience (if any) would be appreciated.
