SCSIU320 shared between ext DAT and internal HDD

Hi Guys,

Is it advisable to share a SCSIU320 card between 2 x internal HDDs and a 1 x external DAT drive?

Thanks!

In general it is not recommended/supported to mix tapes and disks on the same bus due to different speeds and bandwith requirements.

Hope this helps!

"What implications would it give if we did in case?"

Expect problems in speed and availability.

Try to look up your combination here:
