Can a Proliant DL580 G5 handle 2 MSL6060s?


We have a Proliant DL580 G5 that currently has one MSL6060 attached to it. There are 4 Ultrium 460 tape drives that are connected by 4 SCSI cables attached to 2 u320e SCSI controllers.

We have an Alpha ES45 that is going to be decommissioned that has a MSL6060 with 4 Ultrium 460 tape drives. I was thinking of attaching this 2nd MSL6060 to the Proliant by buying a couple more u320e controllers. Will the Proliant DL580 G5 be able to handle 2 MSL6060s? Does anyone see a problem with this confirgation?

There are 10 kinds of people, one that understands binary and one that doesn't.
