DS2100 Enclosure consumes SCSI IDs?

The disk module SCSI addresses are fixed by slot position. There are no jumper settings required.

Each drive requires a SCSI ID, a four-bit address defined as SCSI ID (3:0). The SCSI ID0 and SCSI ID3 bits are controlled by an A-B-C slide switch located at the rear of the enclosure. Each enclosure must have a unique Box ID on a given SCSI
channel.

Re: DS2100 Enclosure consumes SCSI IDs?

Hello,

The A,B,C slider is there so that if you daisy-chain 2 or 3 DS2100s, you set them different SCSI IDs through that slider.

A -> 0, 2, 4, 6
B -> 8, 10, 12, 14
C -> 9, 11, 13, 15

These are the SCSI IDs in order of disk.

HTH,

Thanks vincent, but I don't know if the DS2100 itself consumes SCSI ID0 OR SCSI ID3 through slide swith.

Re: DS2100 Enclosure consumes SCSI IDs?

Hello,

Follow the SCSI IDs I've given you.

If you slide it to A, ID0 is consumed. But, ID3 is never consumed by either A, B or C.

So slide it on B or C and you should be fine.
