Hi Yücel,

sorry for my english:-)

It's verry small.

My suggestion is:

Check all cables, update the drivers an Firmware from the Adaptec.

where hangs the Win2k System HDD's? Same Controller?

Can you try another controller?

kind regards

Yuecel,

i again.

the Adaptec is an ultra-verrry-old SE(8bit) controller with max 40MB/s.

The Ultrium makes 160MB/s,

thats verry underperform to use this controller.

I think that's no good idea to connect the Ultrium on this controller.

By an certified controller Card for these Ultrium.

Regard

I agree 100% with Mann, you should not use this HBA with a LTO II drive, it will limit a lot the bandwith and will cause problems. I also think that this controller and his drivers are not able to manage the scsi3 command used for LTO2

Hi Yuecel,

maybe IRQ-problems?

change the PCI-Slot(Bus-Master ready) for testing

Take the newest driver and firmware fot the adaptec and the newest TTL from HP.

can you test the adaptec with a normaly SCSI-HDD?
