E35 SCSI

E35 SCSI

Hey,

I have a full E35 server with 8 SCSI drives. Its the typical rackmount layout - there are two units with drives in beneath the actual E35. There are two drives in the E35. I have got HP-UX 10.20 on the machine but its slow and bloated - it was used by BT before me and I want to start afresh. I have tried putting Gentoo linux on it, but unfortuantly it will not recognise any SCSI drives. Any ideas on where to find a driver that will work or if any exist. Also, does anyone know how / where to obtain a copy of HP-UX 10.20? Preferably for a cheap price - this is a hobby.

Thanks for your help,

Tom.

Re: E35 SCSI

Try to ask it at HP in the UK to obtain a copy. It think this will be the cheapest solution

Re: E35 SCSI

HP no longer offers 10.20 for sale. It is also unsupported at this point in time. The licensing of HP-UX (or any UNIX)prohibits just handing out copies or reselling them. The original license is a license only to use HP-UX on that system by the purchaser. However, if you choose to ignore that, you might try Ebay, at your own risk.

Re: E35 SCSI

Hi Tom,

the E35 uses the HP-PB bus for the SCSI cards. It was never a linux driver build for these bus system nor for any HP-PB card (from what I know).

=> E-Class I/O will not work with Linux.
