Installing SC44Ge Host Bus Adapter

Server: Proliant DL385 G2, running Windows Server 2003.
Tape drive: External HP StorageWorks 1/8 G2 Tape Autoloader Ultrium-3 SCSI,
Connection: HP SC44Ge Host Bus Adapter.

My question is which PCIe slot is best to use for this host adapter?

Thanks,
David

None of the specs for that server seem to offer any guidance on which slot to use. I would just plug it into the most convenient x8 slot.

Note that there is an advisory published for discovery problems with that card if you also have the 8 port internal HBA w/ RAID controller. If you have any problems you might check hp.com for that advisory.
