HP StorageWorks DAT 72i on a fast wide scsi 2 bus...

The drive has the HD68 connector, which makes it an Ultra wide SCSI-3/Ultra2 LVD SCSI/Wide Differential SCSI (I think !!). I need to connect this drive to an old Proliant 1500 which uses IDC50 cable connectors on Fast Wide SCSI 2 bus. Is it possible ? I tried to use an adapter (PTA-101A) and the BIOS is recognizing the drive (after I updated the ROM) but no luck with Arcserve 6.1 EE running on Netware 3.12 (up to date). Here is the error message:

I know it is an odd combination of old/new hardware/software but I would really like to see it working.

Any help or suggestion appreciated.
