Hp Storage MSL 2024 Installtion Issues

We have a HP StorageWorks MSL2024 Tape Library installed in Dl 380 G4 Server.
Connected to the External port of the 642 raid Controller. Operating system is Windows 2003 Std Edition.
Our issue is the tape drive is getting detected with windows 2003 but the driver is not installed.

I have verified the HP website and no driver download available for this Product,

can we connect the tape drive to the external port for the Storage raid Controller???
I have to install the separate PCI SCSI controller and connect to the tape drive ??

Pls let us know how to resolve this issue??

No, it is not supported.

Check the EBS matrix here

Find the supported SCSI HBAs on page 30.

Also see this page, here you find interesting compatibility information:

I will get a HBA card and install it in the server.
