Proliant DL580 - Linux RedHat 5.3 - Unable to detect internal tape drive

Hi,

I am unable to detect my internal LTO2 tape drive. Already replaced a number of hardware parts in order for the tape drive to be detected but to no avail.

Not even a device file was assigned to my tape drive. What seems to be the problem in here?
