This controller doesn't support tape drives - you need another controller!

check:

Hope this helps!

I have the PN Q1529A DAT (hot-plag tape drive internal).
This DAT is supported by DL380G4 in SmartArray

The solution of the problem is:

# modprobe st
# echo "engage" > /proc/driver/cciss/cciss0

verify:
# ls -l /dev/st*
# ls -l /dev/nst*
# ls -l /dev/tape (link to /dev/nst0)

#cat /proc/scsi/sci (the SCSI TAPE is configured)

# mt -f /dev/st0 status
