Can I add a second RAID controller, for an additional JBOD?

Hi.

I have an HP Proliant DL380 G5, with a P800 smart array controller.   I currently have an HP StorageWorks MSA60 JBOD attached to the array controller, and all works as expected.

I have just purchased an HP StorageWorks D2700 JBOD (as the MSA60 was no longer available.).  

I now realise that the D2700 cannot be connected to the P800 controller.

Can I just add an additional RAID controller, compatible with the D2700 for attaching this to, without interfering with the existing set up?

Thanks in advance.

Lawrence
