Compaq EXT 40/80 DLT on AlphaServer

I recently tried moving a Compaq external 40/80 DLT tape drive from a Proliant to an AlphaServer.

The problem is that the Alphaserver does not recognize the drive. (I did reboot the server)

The drive worked fine on the Proliant. I must note that on the Proliant it ran without the terminator plug on the back of the device. My guess is that on the new server it may be required. Can anyone confirm this? If so, what kind of terminator do I need.

I think it has a VHDCI interface. Are all VHDCI terminator plugs the same?
