MSA500 connecting to BL server using SCSI

Hi,

Would anyone know if BL servers can be connected to MSA500 SCSI storage? Documentation for BLs mentions Fiber SANs frequently, no mention of Yes/No for SCSI, but the customer in this case already has an MSA500 which they would like to attach to a new enclosure of blades.

Any info much appreciated,
Thanks, Petar

Re: MSA500 connecting to BL server using SCSI

My question is similiar; can I hook a HP MSL5026 tape library via SCSI to a BL 25p server? No mention of this in the documentation and I don't see how from the back of the Blade enclosure that you could get at a SCSI port. Bet you are limited to a fibre channel connection if you want to have a blade server act as a backup device say using NetBackup.
