Post Connecting SAS tape drive via VMDirectPath
Hello guys,
we investigate whether we can connect SAS tape LTO5 drive directly to the VM e.g. via LSI SAS2008 HBA adapter (IBM 6Gb SAS HBA).
Please do you have an experience with the HBA?
Thank you.

I haven't heard of it being used. What sort of hardware are you planning on using?

Hello Dave,
we plan to use IBM x3650 servers and IBM DS2512 storage. Please do you know any SAS adapter being supported (both in that server and by Direct Path)?
