HP SureStore E Tape Library Server Support

Does an A-Class server supports a 20-slot HP SureStore E Tape Library? If it does, what would I need to install the tape library on this A-Class?

Re: HP SureStore E Tape Library Server Support

Generally speaking the answer is yes. You would start with having a HBA card (A5158A) card installed on your system. You can then have this patched into a brocade switch and zones to the tape library. You can also share this tape library with other hosts. Have a look at the link provided which contains a variety of documents that reference this material.
