I have a dead server that had a SAN-attached drive named (SAN_100GB). Bottom line -- since the server is dead, I can't get to the drive. I need the data off that 100GB LUN/drive. I can see the "logical unit" in Hitachi Disk Array Management v3. However, I do not know how to grab the drive's "link" from the dead server and attach it to a live server -- so I can pull the data from it.

If someone would assist me, I would be eternally grateful. I can provide screen shots or whatever else you need.

Additional Info:
Hitachi SAN (named LHS-SAN1 //
Disk Array Management Program (DAMP v3)
Attached to my network via a fiber switch
SEVERAL "SAN drives" are mapped to various other servers
