Unfortunately it's hba1 that seems to have died. I've tried changing switch port, replacing the SFP on the switch, and replacing the fibre "patch lead" so seems to be the hba itself not working. Unless changing which PCI slots the HBAs are in will bring this back, I'll just have to try moving the switch the tape's patched into.. many thanks.

Oh Chopper3: If I repatch it'll be coming on on a different HBA - It appears in Backup Exec the tape drive has properties "Port 4" Lun 0, which matches HBAnywhere's "OS Device Name": \\.\Scsi4 - and the working drive has "Port 3" in backup exec, and "OS Device Name: \\.\Scsi3" in HBAnywhere. Once again scared if I repatch the drive into the other switch (and therefore into the other HBA on the sever) I won't be able to go back to a working config..

Many thanks! Where do you learn how to design storage networks? @Chopper3 - I have a CS degree but everything I've learned about SAN has been on-the-job research projects driven by the need for maintaining existing kit, so know only very little, but find the LAN and SAN design fascinating.
