dd4 C6369A issue wuth HPUX v2 11.23 RX2600

I have a issue when I try to install the dds4 drive using a scsi u320 interface. The system reports IO errors and I can't see the drive.
These are the errors:
mpt_analyze_ioc_status SCSI Protocol Error, resetting bus. Instance = 4, lbolt 8
SCSI Ultra320 0/3/1/0 instance 4: Driver initiating SCSI bus reset.
mpt_analyze_ioc_status SCSI Protocol Error, resetting bus. Instance = 4, lbolt 1
SCSI Ultra320 0/3/1/0 instance 4: Driver initiating SCSI bus reset.
mpt_analyze_ioc_status
Can it be a bad drive?
The on-board scsi gets similar errors. I have tried several cables and terminators.

Did you terminate the bus?
Check the cable for bent pins.

Be careful if using the onboard connector - do you have a disk in the upper slot?

Hope this helps!

I used a separate card. The card has a & b. I tried both ports and I tried a differant PCI slot. I tried several terminators as well as verified their LVD SE.
Nothing, Same error. I am thinking the RX2600 does not like that drive.

Yes, the card was in the second slot from top.


Did you check the cable? Maybe the device end has this 68pin connector. These pins are very easy to bent.


Hope this helps!

Yes, the cable is fine. I have tried (2) cables. The system is fine when I remove the tape unit. It could be the tape drive.

Shalom,

These tape drives do fail.

That is what I think happened in this instance.

Based on the fact cables did not help.
