yes, but don't expect to be able to access the pre-existing logical devices/data.

I've seen this working but you get no environmental monitoring.

No, the EVA3000 is SES-compliant. There is commercial software, shareware, and built-in products for just about any O/S you can imagine to monitor any SES-compliant enclosure.

It's possible as far as accessing the disks in it is concerned.

I don't think you'll have much luck monitoring the enclosure status, you might be able to get some info because as David says it does use SES protocol, however it was never designed to be used as a standalone enclosure so there's quite likely some vendor specific stuff. A SES monitoring tool is likely to be able to see the fan status - X but it may not know what X represents.

What's wrong with the controllers? Failed batteries so you can't see the LUNs or completely failed so CV-EVA can't talk to them?
