For direct attach no switch is required. Appropriate configuration of the VTL IS however because you would need a Virtual Library configured on each port of the VTL that you want to use. You are sharing the VTL system but not specifically the library withing the VTL in this case.

Subtle difference perhaps but different.

Yes you CAN use a switch and then share a single Virtual Library through the switch.

I think option A requires that same switch. Either that or some cable monkey flopping the appropriate cables as needed.
