Problem in detection of External Ultrium-2 SCSI tape drive over server rp8400.

I have one problem whose description is as follows:

Server model : rp8400
2 GSP Cards connected vertically .
Total number of cell it is having: 2
each cell= 1npar(host)
hostnames Ist hostname= rbik2_2
and IInd hostname= rbik24
1 external Ultrium-2 SCSI tape drive.

Problem:
when i am connecting this external tape drive to upper GSP card's scsi port then it is only getting detected by rbik24 only and rbik2_2 showing No H/W in ioscan output.

And when i am connecting this external tape drive to below GSP card's scsi port then it is only getting detected by rbik2_2 only and rbik24 showing No H/W in ioscan output.

As far as i think it should be detected by both the hosts at the same time either we connect external tape drive to upper gsp or lower gsp.My views over this is supported by this fact that here we are able to get console of either of these host by using "MP lan console port" and mp console is connected to one GSP only and "MP lan console port" of other gsp is not in use.

Attachement is there for more clear picture over the problem plz find it.
Any help over this matter is most welcome.

Thanks & Regadrs
