HP 24X6 and Backup Exec 9.1

I have got an HP 24X6 tape library. When I install it in a Windows 2003 Server and Backup Exec 9.1, Backup Exec detect it as a stand alone tape drive (HP C1557A). From the Backup exec log file, I found the following:

Raymond:

Which type of server is the 24/6 connected to?

How is it connected to the server? (controller type)

I am using a PC with an Adaptec 2940UW SCSI card.
