Tape Array 5300 Config Question

I have an existing Tape Array 5300 with a DDS4 drive and an Ultrium 215. I am thinking about adding another Ultrium and it appears the existing Ulrium is only taking up a 1/2 bay and that there is room for another Ultrium. However, the config manual says that DLTs and Ultriums require 1 bay (2 slots). Can I add another Ultrium 215?

Someday computers will work for people.

Accommodates up to four internal half-height drives (such as the Ultrium 215) or two full-height drives (such as the Ultrium 230 or Ultrium 460).
