HI Yasin

 

I dont think your PC system may support Ultrium448 SCSI, these are mainly designed for

Enterprise Servers,

Though you may get this working with your setup but at certain point of time your backups may

start failing.

hi Yasin,

 

The DW016B Ultrium 448 drive can be connected to a 412911-B21 as it is a ultra 320 SCSI HBA. As long as your PC is able to use the HBA, the Ultrium drive behind it can be used.

 

The performance of your backups might not be as expected on a proper Server hardware but they will definitely work as long as you are using a proper Backup software. You can go ahead and use this setup.

 

Hope this helps

 

 

Regards

Raj
