Hi,

for MSAs above 500 G2(1000+) you need fibre channel HBA, so no scsi connection is possible.

Specs and supported options:

Re: HP MSA 1000 compatibility

The MSA1000 supports Ultra320 disks, but the controller interface is only Ultra 3.
It has 4 channels, 2 to the embeded disk enclosure, and 2 external.

From the MSA1000 Quickspecs:

Interface:
- Ultra3 SCSI to Hard Drives
- 2 Gb Fibre Channel to Hosts

MSA1000 supports HP Universal 1" Ultra2, Ultra3 and Ultra320 drives
