It is not possible to hook two MSA20s to one SCSI cable. You need one SCSI port on a host per each MSA20 you want to connect.

Re: 2 x Disk Arrays model 20

It's not a MSA20, right?

The old model 20 (Nike) has a dip switch bank for each storage processor near the SCSI connetors. Set the DIP switches to the IDs you want. It's important to configure a unique ID for each of the 4 (2 per array) SPs.

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
