Coming soon: a much simpler Servers and Operating Systems section of the Community. We will combine many of the older boards, and you won't have to click through so many levels to get at the information you need. If you are looking for an older board and do not find it, check the consolidated boards, as the posts are still there.

Re: DAT 40 not seen with SEA command at BCH main menu

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 :-)
