DL380 G1 can't detect tape drive

I have connect DSS4 internal on my port#1 but the drive is not detect at the boot.
I don't see a kind of drive on boot just "TAPE DRIVE ON PORT#1" but i can't use it.

My tape drive is a HP C5683-00625 20/40GB DDS4 Tape Drive.
I have RAID1 drive on port#2. Two 18.2 Go RAID 1.

Hi the controller on the motherboard of DL380 G1 is a Smart Array, you cannot connect a tape drive there.
Check DAT 20/40 quickspecs for the compatible controllers (you need a non-RAID SCSI controller)

Are you sure you have your SCSI drive ID's correct? I have run Dat tape drives off of an array controller. Its not supported but it is a SCSI controller.
