Dell does not test nor validates attaching a Tape Drive to Raid controllers
as this could lead to several possible issues and/or problems. (i.e. SCSI
timeouts, hardware lockups, Degraded performance on your raid array, etc.)
You will always want to attach Tape Drives to a seperate SCSI controller
(Embedded: AIC-7899, PCI: 39160, 2940U2W).
