Dear All thanks for the replies

That's a tape not a SAN, and there is no fiberchannel. Just an SCSI
tape attached to outside ports of an LSI SCSI adapter(a pci card).
Does that something to do with hp_rescan utility? Isn't hp_rescan only
for Emulex HBAs? If not, Where could I find the rpm or tgz package?

I don't think that SCSI ports outside(behind) the server chasis be for
smart arrays? Are you sure?
