Yes it is BUT you need HVD SCSI interface cards. (A4800A or A5159A [dual port]) for your L-box or an Adaptec AHA-2944UW for your Netserver.
If it ain't broke, I can fix that.

Re: HP SURESTORE E DISKARRAY 12H

I wouldn't get the dual port rather two single ports just so there's no single point of failure in your configuration.

You could also get fibre channel adaptor and a fc -> scsi mux

This would be a better solution in the long run as the autoraid can be taken down for maintenance without having to shutdown your server.

You can't hot plug scsi (unless you've got 11i and OLAR capable scsi cards.)

It works for me (tm)
