1/8 G2 to HP Z400 host connection

Is it possible to connect 1/8 G2 Autoloader to HP Z400 workstation with 2008 R2 server to work as media server for backup with data protector?

I know, it's unusual solution, however if it is possible, could you tell how - HBA, etc. Thkns.

Z400 has x16 pcie free port

 maybe LSI 9212 4-Port SAS 6Gb/s RAID Card or HP Smart Array P212 Controller will work for SAS but who knows will it or not

anyway, thanks, i think we'll buy a cheap server for this needs

The HBA will depend on the autoloader interface - SAS, FC or SCSI.

Hope this helps!
