ML 150 and Dat Drive

hi guys,

i got here an ML150 Xeon 2.8GHz/533, with (2)36G Ultra HD. now my users want to purchase a tape drive for this. ive searched HP and it says that ML150 supports HP StorageWorks DAT Drives Internal (24/40/72). im confused since im not sure how to connect the tape drive to the server. the board has SCSI A and B channels, where B is being used for the hotswap harddrives. will it be possible to connect the tape drive to SCSI A channel? or do i have to order an HBA card with it?

If you are not using a raid controller.

Connect disks to SCSI channel A
Connect tape to SCSI channel B

If you have external SCSI channels, it is not allowed to connnect devices on de external channel A and the internal channel A at the same time.
