Hi there.
You must connect the drive to a FWD SCSI interface on the HSC bus in that machine. The HP PB is not enough for it. You should have at least one HSC connector on your box.
The drive needs that interface all for itself,
no other devices should be connected or daisychained.

Re: Quantum DLT 7000

Hello

The DLT 700 drive is supported on both HSC and HPPB cards, so you could use either. But as Alexander was eluding to, the HSC card is preferable as the HPPB card really doesn't have the performance to push the drive. In order to get the best performance, I'd suggest the HSC card too.

Re: Quantum DLT 7000

I agree with the previous writer. You may use either a HPPB or HSC card. The HSC is only required for the DLT8000. He was also correct about putting nothing else on the SCSI chain, unless it is another tape drive or CD that will absolutely, positively NOT be used when the DLT7000 is being used.

I also suggest you search this forum for other threads, there are some good ones about the internal bandwidth of the HSC cards on your box.
