TL891 minilibrary

I receive an error message when connecting the TL891 minilibrary to compaq ML370 server.
message reads: proliant storage enclosure not responding, check power switch and cables.

I am sure I have the proper scsi cables, but not sure if I have the connection from the tape unit to the server correct.

Help

Re: TL891 minilibrary

Are you sure you have the termination correct on both ends of the SCSI bus. Differential SCSI is really picky about that.

Also, only a couple models of Compaq SCSI HBAs are listed in the specs as compatible:
- 64 bit dual channel Wide Ultra II SCSI Adapter (P/N 348757-B21)
- 64 bit 66 MHz dual channel dual channel Wide Ultra III SCSI Adapter (P/N 129803-B21)

Are you using one of those two?

The TL891 comes in two versions:
The original version has a High Voltage Differential SCSI port. It won't work when connected directly to a ML370 as this server uses a Low voltage Differential SCSI port. if this is the case then you need a HVD SCSI adapter Option part number 157299-B21.
The later TL891 with the LVD SCSI port is identified as a TL891 DLX. This will work when connected to a ML370 SCSI port.
