Backup of a HP MSA2012i

Hi there,
we have a HP MSA2012i Dual-Controller with 3 Shelfs.
On Shelf 0 we have VMware VMFS-Volumes.
On Shelf 1 we have 6 Master-Volumes with our Datas. The Volumes are connected with the MS iSCSI-Initiator on a Windows 2003 Server as Fileserver.
Shelf 2 should be the Backup-Shelf with Volume-Copies from Shelf 1. This Volumes should be connected on a Windows 2003 Server as Backupserver.
Today the HP-Support told me thats not possible to map a Volume to a Host automatically after a Volume Copy. So, i have no opinion to do a backup with BackupExec on the Backup-Server.
What is the best way to do a tape backup of files in a Volume on the MSA??? Is the BackupAgent the only way???
