Compaq DLT with HP Server - Compatability issues.

Hello All,

We have HP Server K570 running HP-UX 10.20. We have bought Compaq DLT 40/80 Drive P/N:30-60502-10. Our Hp engineer has said this is not compatble. Is this right? i need the reference talking about its compatability and/or non-compatability.

One more thing to mention here, we are using LVD to HVD SCSI Converter for this drive.

Now I want to order another drive DLT80e for K570 box. Please let me have its compatibility information, with reference, and its part number so that I can proceed.

thanks in advance,

Dear Yasir,

pls be aware :
The DLT8000 (C6378A / C6379A) is not support on the HP-PB bus --> Only the HSC and PCI type bus are supported !!

so on your system....

HP-UX 10.20+ ---> HSC bus only on the K570
and you will be able to use the Dlt8000 (C6378A / C6379A) mentioned - but only on the HSC bus !!

If U want to; let's get technical.... :P
