SureStore DLT AutoLoader 818 compatible card

Hi,

I just wanted to enquire if anyone knew if the SureStore DLT AutoLoader 818 is compatible with any of the following scsi cards:
- "Adaptec AIC-7899"
- "AHA-2940UW"
- "Adaptec 39160"
- "Mylex DAC960LB – DB1"

and if so which ones.

Thank you in advance,
Har

Hello,

The autoloader 818 is a HVD device. The Adaptec SCSI cards you mentioned (first three) are LVD SCSI cards, which are electrically not compatible with it.

The Mylex card you mentioned is a RAID controller, which are not supported on tape devices/libraries.

Sorry,

just to add the wintel view, there is also the LVD model of 818, in this case, the Adaptecs controllers listed are all compatible, the Mylex, as explained, is a raid controller and do not support tapes and robotic controllers.

So you can check with the correct product number or your unit, and see in the quick-specks what is the interface type you have

Hey guys,

Thanks for the help, it is much appreciated.

I didnt know that 2 versions of the "SureStore DLT AutoLoader 818" existed, i have a LVD type. I was also wondering where i could get more information on the device as i cant seem to find much more than http://h200006.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/lpg28337/lpg28337.pdf site.


Thanks
