dlt 7000 bus mismatch error

HI all
I have replace a dlt 7000 unit and all the scsi jumper settings are the same as the old unit that was faulty.
I am getting the amber flashing light at the back of the unit and am unable to see the dlt unit in windows although I can see the robot.

Any idears
thanks in advance

Re: dlt 7000 bus mismatch error

do you see the dlt at boot time? (in the bios of the hba?

if not, be sure first to not put a a dlt with wrong interface (hvd on a LVD bus or viceversa)

check all cables and terminators for bent pins or damaged connectors

Removed the dlt and check all the scsi connections on the unitand to the co ntroller board.
Since I only have one dlt drive I move the relacement unit and plugged in to the spare bay that has never been used,now i get a hardware 44h error test_tape ?
Then I inserted the old dlt unit in to the bay that was never user and on the old dlt unit I now get error 0h.
next I will replace the scsi controller board.
But if any has any idears ?

thanks

Gerard, I do not know which libraary model you have, but if it is a model with external connection to the drive (like 2/20 or 7515, you can try to connect just the drive to the server (server=>drive=>terminator) and see if it appear on the bios of the HBA.
