Ultrium 1760 ext SAS to ML350G3 ? Ideas?

Has anyone had any experience with attaching the SAS 1760 ext to any external PCI-X HBA's - maybe the Adaptec 48300.

I would really like the get the single tape storage of the 1760.

Thoughts.

The HP supported option is the 347786-B21 PCI-X HBA which is an internal only HBA, then you have to use a special internal to external cable: AE468A

If you check the http://www.hp.com/go/connect web site that particular server isn't listed anymore but you can look at a similar server and get the details. I checked the ML310G3 and it took me to a page with that information.

If you want to use a partially unsupported configuration I would recommend the LSI SAS HBAs. The library is supported on LSI SAS HBAs but the Proliant team doesn't support those HBAs in that server.

Same problem here, I'd like to plug an Ultrium 1760 to an "old" ProLiant DL385.

Like Curtis said, LSI looks like the way to go.
HP listed their SAS3442X-R as a recommended 3rd party solution indeed.
