SAS tape drive on an rx6600

i have to connect a sas tape drive to an rx6600.
the server has 1 SAS controller with 2 ports and only 2 internal disks.
two cables are connected to the sas controller.
i can't find a way to connect the tape drive
i saw a discussion in this forum saying that each port of the sas controller can handle 4 disks.
so can i disconnect a cable from the sas controller and connect my tape drive?

Nappy,

Have a look at this page.

http://www.hp.com/products1/storage/compatibility/tapebackup/software/Detail/17-0041-0043.html

And this warning
Ignite-UX support is not yet available for the HP Integrity rx6600 with the HP StorageWorks DAT 160 SAS .

For example:

Hope this helps!
