Upgrade Tape Drive ML350G4?

We have an ML350 G4 server with a DLT8000 tape drive. We have outgrown the capacity of the DLt drive and I'm thinking of replacing the DLT drive with a HP StorageWorks DAT 160 SCSI Internal Tape Drive with a SCSI-3 Ultra 160 LVD interface.

The ML350 has 2, HP 64-Bit/133MHz PCI-X 2CH Ultra320 HBA controllers. Will the 160GB DAT drive work with these controllers?

Thanks for any help.

Hi Siringo,

Yes the 160GB DAT drive would work with the HP 64-Bit/133MHz PCI-X 2CH Ultra320 HBA controllers.
