ESX+Tape Library Support

We have ESX 4.1.
I want to use one of the Virtual Machine as a Data protector cell manager.We have a MSL Tape Library. Is it possible to assign the medium changer and drive to the virtual machine running with data protector cell manager.
Also 1/8 SAS autoloader is supported with virtual machine ???

I have seen the EBS compatibiltiy Matrix and it shows as "Multi target only (no multi LUN)".
What does this mean ??

EBS link is given below and refer page number 31.
