Second drive cage as second channel ?

G'Day
We have just purchased another DL380(#12). This time I got the secondary 2 drive hotplug bay as well. Is there anyway to run the 1x4 and 1x2 hotplug drive cages from seperate array controllers. I would like to have the system volume on one array controller( 2 x 9GB drives mirrored), and the data volume on a seperate 431 array controller(2 x 18 GB drives mirrored). The two cages seem to want to be ganged together as a group of six, are there any work arounds to seperate them, so that the can be run on seperate channels?
Cheers
Oliver

Re: Second drive cage as second channel ?

The " secondary 2 drive Hotplug cage " is programed via hardware as Scsi Id 4 & 5. These were designed to work together, if you seperate them the red light on the drives will stay on, your best bet would be to purchase an external LVD storage array(4314R) and do it right,
