Hi Mark,

Thx for your answer.

But, if the second channel is'nt configured in RAID, can we use our device ?

I can't test before putting the machine in datacenter. The device is 
already in datacenter.

In a few day, the new machine will be installed. I would like to know if 
the media changer will be able to be connected to the server.
