When use backup (symantec backup exec 2012) the second drive delete from windows device manager.
And get event: System Error HP Fibre Channel "A fibre channel HBA port has changed to a state of link down."
After reboot library, this drive show up in device manager and all work.

After swapping FC Cable from Drive 1 to Drive 2, still you are facing problem with the same drive1 or new one drive 2. If you are facing problem with same drive 1 means problem with Drive SFB connector in Drive. If you are facing problem with new drive 2 means probelm with FC Cable.
