Not all of them. But it is a model-by-model "feature", and maybe not at all on any models prior to some generation. I have a tape library (and only a tape library) attached to a Smart Array P212, but this is a much newer (SAS) host adapter than the 3200. I vaguely recall having had to do some reading of spec sheets to find out that this one would work with tape.

until further notice
