Re: SCSI errors when connecting DAT72(HP C7438A) to rp4440 with 11.11

TTr,
You mentioned that there were other slots, are you suggesting i take that card out and put it in another slot? Will that make my issue go away? And if so, which slot?

No I am not suggesting to take the card out. I thought I was clear saying "you can add a scsi controller". You can buy a scsi controller and install it on any available slot.

If you look on the server, the PCI slots #1 and #2 are colored light blue. These slots have factory installed cards, #1 is for the disks and #2 is for the lan. The remaining slots are colored red (or dark red, I am not good with color hues) and are for add on cards.

Each pci slot is attached to an i/o bus and has different i/o bandwidth. Take a look at the quickspecs and the i/o architecture to see the speed of each slot.

Download and save the quickspecs and the user manual, they will soon disappear from the HP web site.

Thanks, for the info I will be sure to download it.. Ok, now you have got me thinking.. From what i can tell, i can safely connect the tape drive to the rp3440, is there a way i can utilize that tape drive via network? nfs mount or something? I know i am probably grasping at straws but is there anyway i can utilize that tape drive remotely from the rp3440 to the rp4440?

Not for ignite restore.

Remember what I said about the rp3440 and the tape connect to the built-in port!

Hope this helps!

Torsten.
