When you happen to have VIOS, create a NPIV based config so you can

not block your local network with the FTP traffic.

We don't have VIOS. We have i hosting i, with one host and three guest
LPARs. We only have two tape drives in our TS3100, and only two SAS
controllers. So we resort to DLPARing the SAS controllers, and only one
LPAR can use our TS3100 at a time. That has proved to be inconvenient at
times. We definitely have room for improvement.

Also check out Quadstor as an alternative to get started with VTL.

I've been checking it out, and have mentioned it to the powers that be.
