DLT 4000 Parity Switch

Should the parity switch on the back of a DLT 4000
be set to on or off?

Thanks for your help,

Dan K.

Re: DLT 4000 Parity Switch

Dan, parity should be enabled, this is the default state. When parity is
enabled it provides scsi bus parity checking and also internal parity checking
on the cache buffer.
