What are the supported OBDR configurations for the G8 (ML350 and DL380)? Specifically, what host bus adapter combined with internal SAS Ultrium 920 (lto-3) is supported? Does HP have any plans to update the website with G8 support info - to include the G8 servers in every server list in Support?

thank you for your contribution, please be so kind and clarify why a 2nd Media Bay Cage
should be necessary for mounting a SCSI Tape Drive (i.e 448i, 920i)
By looking at the picture of the part, it shows a SAS Backplane which would be
of no use for a SCSI drive. See picture here:
Thanks in advance
