Difference between 2 drives...

I have the following 2 HP drives:
AB420
A9896

The specs for both looks the same and they look to be the same.

They are both mounted to be able to plug into the RX2600 & RX2620 servers. The AB420 works, the A9896 is identified but can't be initialized by the server.

What is the difference between the drives and where does the A9896 work?

Re: Difference between 2 drives...

What does it mean "... can't be initialized by the server." ???

What did you do? What did you see? Exact commands and results?

Hope this helps!

Torsten.

It identifies the position on the SCSI bus, the manufacturer, name, and size on the first line.
It then print "Cannot initialize SCSI Device"

I should also say that I choose the following commands:

Boot Configuration
Boot From File

It then "Searching for Devices"

On the other RX2620, it displays the devices as part of the startup display.
