L2000 and Tape Drives


Want to connect 2 tapes drives (Sony AIT-3) to a L-2000 (A5191A). Was wondering whether A5150A is my fastest throughput option or can I use a A5856A for tape drives?

Thanks in advance.

Re: L2000 and Tape Drives

Hi Emil,

Both controllers are Ultra2 SCSI, but the A5856A is HP's RAID 4si controller. As per the install notes for the RAID 4si controller, it supports SCSI Disk drives (no tapes).

Hope this helps,
