HP e3000 Business Servers Configuration Guide advises:
DDS-4 (Supported on N- and A-Class running 7.0 express 1)
â ¢ SCSI-3 LVDS (Low voltage differential SCSI) interface Ultra2 wide compatible

I do not recall that the SE SCSI port on the 969KS core I/O is compatible.

These DLT drives work, connected to a FWD adapter: C6378A DLT-8000 Desktop drive
C6379A DLT-8000 Rack ready drive
Missing MPE :-)
