DL380 G5 and LTO drive?


Hi everybody,

Is there any way to get a LTO drive on a DL380 G5. I want to buy a Server not to much expensive with a LTO 4 Drive. Is this the right option??

Thanks,

Use this matrix:

Be aware of the notes in section

Compatible Controllers & Host Bus Adapters:

"The HP ProLiant DL380 G5 does not have a suitable integrated SCSI controller for connecting the HP StorageWorks Ultrium xyz . Please use one of the following compatible HBAs:

PCI Express Host Bus Adapters:

412911-B21 - HP SC11Xe PCIe Ultra320 SCSI HBA (Internal/External)
PCI-X Host Bus Adapters (Requires PCI-X Riser Kit option listed below):
374654-B21 - HP Single Channel Ultra320 SCSI HBA G2 "

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
