The SCSI terminator may be disconnected.
If no physical terminiator, then one of the devices has the terminiation set.

Also, check the LUN (logical Unit Number) make sure each SCSI device has a unique LUN. The LUN can be set on the back via the "push button"...

Plugged in an external tape drive into scsi controller while on and lost the raid configuration the two arrays show but the drives say DDD defunct


This may due to HDD ID is conflict with external tape drive. Check and change the tape drive ID will solve your problem.

My exterior Apple CD 600e will not show on the desktop of my Maci


As I recall, this is a SCSI device. Like many electrical connectors, SCSI connectors can develop a light corrosion which can keep the signals from being transmitted. The easiest way to clean such light corrosion is to shut down the Mac & power down *all* SCSI devices in the chain. Then gently unplug & replug all SCSI connectors. This will scrape off much of the corrosion & usually results in connectivity being restored. Be sure to unplug and replug the SCSI terminator attached to the last device in the SCSI chain. Restart by powering up the SCSI devices and finally restarting the Mac. Good luck!

The HDD is not accessible by the operating system Digital UNIX during boot At console mode, the "show device" command does not show it in the list of devices. What is the problem? The DEC part no is...


Incorrect Jumper setting (SCSI ID)
Each device on the card/controller cable must have unique ID and must be of the proper type for the card/controller...although some like 50-pin SCSI I and II Are interchangeable, larger, newer drives using Ultra, Ultra-Wide and Differential technologies are not.

Typically the controller is set at 7 or 15, so each attached device (CDROM, HDD, Scanner, Plotter, Tape, etc is allowed to use 0-6 or 0-14 depending on controller type.

Doublecheck that you are not trying to use SCSI-Fast, Wide or Ultra controller with the wrong type/technology drive or (gasp) Differential (used mostly for Tape, Robots, Jukeboxes and CD or DVD Arrays) The others won't work... Diff will smoke the drive.

Good Luck!

I have a firebox and i need to connect two computers to it but it's giving many strange issues.if you can't connect two computers why does it have two firewire ports?


the two firewire ports are for daisy chaining.
you can connect another firebox to the one you already have so that you get more i/o.

definition:
 - A daisy chain is an interconnection of computer devices, peripherals, or network nodes in series, one after another. It is the computer equivalent of a series electrical circuit. In personal computing, examples of "daisy-chainable" interfaces include Small Computer System Interface (SCSI) and FireWire, which allow computers to communicate with peripheral hardware such as disk drives, tape drives, CD-ROM drives, printers, and scanners faster and more flexibly than previous interfaces. 

The main advantage of the daisy chain is its simplicity. Another advantage is scalability. The user can add more nodes anywhere along the chain, up to a certain maximum (16 in SCSI-2 or SCSI-3, for example). A daisy-chain network can be long in terms of the distance from one end to the other, but is not well suited to situations where nodes must be scattered all over a geographic region. In such a case, the cables must zig-zag around, and the overall length of the network can become huge compared with the actual distances between the nodes. This can cause the network to operate slowly for users near opposite ends of the chain.

StorageTek L20 SCSI ID issues?


Did it ever work for you?

You don't have to assign the scsi id's on the drives. The L20 does that for you according to whatever you set in the drive config menu.

When you say the system 'forgets' the id's does that mean it saw them initially? Does it lose any particular one or all of them? What's the physical configuration - that is, what devices are on which scsi busses and what are their ID's? Any daisy chaining?

Is there a router in the mix somewhere?

Tyan S3992 MOBO with scsi drives and tape drive


Only if your BIOS supports booting off the particular device. You could also try to swtich the two PCI slots. Put the tape drive controller in the 1st slot,and the SCSI controller in the 2nd slot.

Which tape drive is it? Is there a firmware update for the BIOS for that PCI controller? I would perhaps contact the vendor of the tape drive/controller

try a new tape yet, be wise, no?
never own only 1 tape, and always have 1 spare new on shelf
of the tape runs via the scsi port, ok , all but the error works.
then it is not the scsi card .
tape first.
then get the drive rebuilt.
keep a spare drive on hand after all, is not backup a key function in any data center./? or small business, be ready?
