Compatibility information

Can a HP StorageWorks 1/8 Tape autoloader be compatible with a Dell PowerEdge 6800 server?
Best regards,

Re: Compatibility information


I do not see why the autoloader would not work. It is a standard SCSI device. Drop the right SCSI adaptor in the Poweredge, if needed, and connect it up. It should work just fine.

Re: Compatibility information

Hello Franklin:
What kind of an Tape Autoloader you have is it an Ultrium 460 or an SDLT?

From , what I gather you should be able to accomodate the 1/8 autoloader. Alternatively,
click on the link below:

and if you take a look at the supported Dell Servers, the 6800 isn't listed. Also, what SCSI card are you using?
