DP on SMA Tape on Blade Enclosure

Hello gurus,
I have a stand-alone tape drive (hp ultrium 920 SAS) that's installed on a blade enclosure. i had installed DP 6.0 on one of the blades (win2k3 64 bit sp2) and tried to install a SAP agent with the error:
Component sap is not supported on target platform (Windows 2003)
I learnt from hp that only Itanium is supported on 64bit if i want to add SAP clients.
My question is, now that I have an SMA box (DL380) that runs 32bit Win2k3, how can i make it 'see' the tape drive on the blade enclosure?

Re: DP on SMA Tape on Blade Enclosure

Some more info on this.
I have these two errors:

Component sap is not supported on target platform (Windows 2003)

and

backups will not run because there are no Cell manager licenses available

HP later told me that win2k3 64bit running on an x86 box won't support the license I have. But I can't get the second error about the license since I have the licences installed.
Anyway, if I install DP on win2k3 32bit on an x83 machine and connect this server and the blade enclosure via fiber, through brocade switches (the tape drive is connected together as one of the blades. It's an Ultrium 920 SAS), HOW can I make this server 'see' the tape drive?

HELP!!!!

thanks again,
