MSL6060

Hi,

I have a question regarding the above library.

My config is as follows:

MSL6060
4x LTO 2 drives

Proliant DL360 G4
HP Ultra320 dual channel 64bit/133 HBA


The library is directly attached scsi using the above HBA. However I would like to know if this is acceptable/sufficient for running all 4 LTO2 drives. I'm currently having problems with timeouts on one of the drives when running L&TT diags.
Additionally on bootup I am getting the 'Devic set to narrow' message.

Any help appreciated.

Rgds,

Re: MSL6060

I think that this is not sufficent at all, the recommandation is to put one LTO2 per scsi bus, so you should go per adding at least another hba, or another server.
I suppose you are using two lto2 per bus.
You need to be aware that the data you are sending to the four LTO are comming (I suppose) from some gigabit lan adapters, and all this ammount of data have to transit on the pci-x bus, the server should be able to manage all this trafic.
