Multiple Disk Arrays on a single SCSI channel?

Hi,
Trying to get confirmation if it is possible to configure more than 1 disk array per scsi channel? I think we can but we have no spare kit to test this.

hardware:
DL560 with 2 x SA6402
2 internal disks (RAID 1) for OS
Storageworks 5400
2 disks on bus A (RAID 1)
3 disks on bus B (RAID 5)

The overall limitation is the number of drives on single SCSI bus (14). You can build 14 RAID 0 arrays with single disk. There is NO problem to configure more than 1 disk array per scsi channel.
