DL100 Data Protection Storage Server

Is it possible to install an HP U320 64bit Single Channel SCSI G2 Host Bus Adapter (374654-B21) in an HP DL100 Data Protection Storage Server 3Tb (AE444A) so I can attach an Ultrium tapedrive to the unit?

The DL100 DPSS comes with a SA6402 controller installed in one of the PCI-X slots, but the DL100 has got a free low-profile, half length PCI-X slot. The images of the 374654-B21 I can find on the Internet or on the Dutch HP SmartPortal site differ sometimes, so I can't tell if this controller is really a low-profile card.

Does anyone have experience with a tapedrive directly connected to the DL100 DPSS?

Re: DL100 Data Protection Storage Server

I've read the quickspecs, but I can't determine if it is possible to fit both the SA6402 and the U320 64bit Single Channel SCSI G2 Host Bus Adapter in the DL100 at the same time...
