Question about ADIC Scalar i500 Tape Drive

1 Answer

Can I patch my FC tape drives directly into my FC switch or can I only attach the tape drives directly to hosts? I don't have FC I/O Blades in this i500.

    Thanks for the input. All the doc's I've dug up explain how to connect the drives to the Scalar FC I/O Blades, and then configuring its connection to the fabric. Left me wondering about the intended connection topology of the tape drives themselves. I'll keep digging... Thx again!

I'm not an expert on current technologies but any FC device should log in to any FC switch. Make life easier on yourself and zone the port instead of the WWN.

Stihl hl75 pole trimmer. Blades don't move. Cable turns when cutting end is off machine, but will not drive blades when it is attached. Anyone have an idea as to what's going on?


More than likely a gearbox problem in the cutter head. They can break teeth on the gears and also have delicate needle bearings than can wear if they are ungreased. Maintenance is paramount on these moving parts.

I want to set up a server and 10 computer LAN without an internet connetin involved


just hook it up, you have no router involved so it will have no internet connection.
Just connect all the PC's to the switch using straight through patch leads and assign the IP address manually as DHCP will not run on the switch.
you don't need a default gateway address as there will be no routing. Just set the IP addresses to;
192.168.0.1
192.168.0.2
192.168.0.3
and so on for each host on the LAN.
Use the subnet mask 255.255.255.0 this will give you the address range 192.168.0.1-254

hope this helps.

I am unable to change the direction of the blades on my hampton bay fan. I am unable to locate the switch


Alexander, if you have a light kit on your fan, look just above where it's a attached to the bottom of the fan. There will be a 2 position slide switch on the side of the housing.. Up is for Winter operation, Down is for Summer operation. Turn the fan OFF and wait until the blades stop turning before switching the direction of the rotation.

Hope this helps you.

I need the connections for the EQ100 between my my receiver and CD player. thanks, bob


Most people don't put EQ directly attached in between a source and the receiver. THAT is what a TAPE loop is for. Then it can be inserted or bypassed by the flick of a switch.

If you MUST. OUTs go to INs.

CD OUT to Audio IN; Main OUT to Receiver (anywhere BUT Phono) IN.

http://www.soundsclassic.com/listpix/audiosourceeq100bk.jpg

Traditionally, the EQ would be in one the tape loops and the D (and all other sources) would be attached to your receiver and a tape Deck would be on one of the EQ's Tape Loops so you would have flexibility to use the EQ with ANY source; and before or after a Tape Deck.

Bear in mind that an AVR (digital multichannel receiver) will NOT pass any digital audio to or through an EQ and that activation of a Tape Loop on an AVR disables all digital sources.

I need to use my late husband's jigsaw but can't get the old, bent blade out. How do I do it and which blade do I replace it with? I need to cut a few cms off the width of a kitchen worktop. I...


Hi Jen,

It depends on whether you have an older or newer model jigsaw. Bosch makes the newer ones with a button you push that will release the blade.
On an older jigsaw, look at the handle from above the jigsaw directly in line with the blade. You should see a screw in the top of the handle. Use a screwdriver and loosen this screw, don't remove it, and when the screw is loose enough, you'll be able to pull the blade out. When you put the new one in, slide it in the slot until it seats.

A rule of thumb is to use the blade with the wider gap and larger teeth on wood, the smaller teeth on metal. Most blades will say bimetal on the metal cutting blades.
Now, the courser the teeth the rougher cut you'll get. So, if you want a nice cut, don't use the blade with the largest teeth. Move down to the next largest.

I don't have a Bosch, so am not sure which codes are for which blades, but you can't go wrong if you go by the size of the teeth.

You didn't say what material the worktop is made of. If it's wood, the second largest toothed blade should be fine.

If you've never used a jigsaw before, I could suggest a couple tips that would help you get a nice job done.
First, put a piece of painters tape or masking tape over where you will cut, draw your line and go easy. The tape will keep the blade from giving you a roughed up top edge.
When you get near the end of the cut, hold a piece of scrap wood flat against the back edge to prevent tearout.
Also, let the saw do the work, don't push it.

Hope this helps, If it does, I'd appreciate a 4 thumbs up, Thanks,

Hello, I have several DTF2 tapes that I would like to extract the files from. is it possible to hookup a DTF drive to a pc workstation and be able to see and extract the files? thanks raf


Yes, you will need a fiber channel host bus adapter (HBA) in the PC. Install the HBA in the PC and connect it to your fabric, and then zone it the same as you would zone a server.
If you don't have a fiber channel fabric, it might work if you connect the HBA directly to the tape drive, but you definitely will need a HBA.
