1/8 Tape Autoloader 230 and 29160LP

Hello
I have searched the forums but am a bit confused

Is anyone able to tell me if the two peices of hardware above will work together?

We have a tape autoloader and this card but it doesnt seem to detect, we have changed scsi ids, rebooted, tried the card in different systems and nothing.

many thanks
adam

It should work,
boot in the bios of the HBA with Ctrl_A
press f6 for default setting,

check for bent pin or damaged cable/terminator
check for disconnected cables inside the autoloader

Hey thanks for the reply

Ive checked and reset the scsi device id and reset it to defaults, practically tried everything! changed scsi ids on the tape auto loader, screwed about with the settings

I brought an old apaptec 2940UW scsi card in from home and hooked it up and changed the scsi id of the scsi controller and it detected it and showed up!

Only difference is i can see between the two cards is the connector on the scsi card. I have attached an image of the convertor cable we had to buy seperately to connect the two devices.

The smaller connector on the cable is the whats going into the scsi card.

I have attached an image with pictures of the scsi card and cable i am working with. sorry if the pictures are a bit crappy, camera isnt exactly the best in the world.

The card is going into a standard PCI bus and not a picx slot. dont know if that effects this or not.

Really baffled me to why it wont work. any other suggestions would help

Thanks

I had a similar problem with the Autoloader, in the end I brought a new SCSI Card 'HP 64-bit/133-MHz pci-x dual channel ultra320 host bus adapter', cost around £200. P/N 268351-B21. I also I had to get a new SCSI cable to convert from wide 63pin to small 64pin P/N 341176-B21.

Hope this helps you.
Let me know how it goes
