Ntbackup hang with Ultrium 920 and U320 SCSI PCI-X (WSS2003R2)

I have installed a hp SCSI card U320 (374654-B21 PCI-X 64bits/133Mhz) on my new HP DL100G2 with WSS2003R2. I have connect an external hp Ultrium 920. During the NT Backup the process start and always hang with a SCSI error (Tape utilty HP)near the 80 MB. As I have 2 identicals SCSI cards and 3 Identicats 920 Ultrium, I replace the cards and the tape drive in différent configuration. The results is always the same.
I try also "Data protector Express" which can't backup any file. I test the drive on an old W2003Server with a adaptec 29160 card and all is OK.
It's seems that the HP U320 SCSI (a LSI in fact) card don't work in this configuration. HP says that they give the problem to their specialists since 2 weeks. Has some body this configuration with an adaptec U320 card ?

Do you have the latest BIOS/Firmware for the server, U320 card and drive on the system ?

Additionally, have you tried using the HP library and Tape tools to see if you can access the drive ?
