SureStore DLT818 Autoloader compatibility

Can I use this unit with a HP 9000 K-class server? What interface card for the HP box do I need?

Re: SureStore DLT818 Autoloader compatibility

The 818 came in two flavors: LVDS, and HVDS.

The LVDS is C6282NB, and the HVDS is C6282RA, when sold through the commerical channel (as a SureStore product).

The HVDS version was also sold as the SureStore E, A1375A product.

You'll need to have an interface card (Wide SCSI) that matches your specific device. I think the standard options on a k-class were an HVDS HSC card, and built-in narrow SE SCSI. If your k-class has an HPPB bus, then there's the option of a wide SE card. You can run an LVDS device on an SE card, although the bus speed may be limited. Hopefully you have an HVDS 818.
The journey IS the reward.
