ML350 and external Ultrium tape drive not found

I connect the tape drive to the server via an external port and the drive is not found by the system at boot. I'm using the on board scsi and have no other devices attached to it. No terminator is required because the tape drive has active termination. No scsi id conflicts are possible because the device is alone on the chain. The internal to external cable works on another server.
Any ideas would be appreciated.

If you use ml350g1 make sure that you have new BIOS - old version not recognize Ultrium devices.

Make sure your internal cable is connected to the on-board SCSI connector. I believe the ML350 comes with the external SCSI port disconnected.
