Ultrium Tape driver 230 and 215

Anyone knows if I can attach a standalone 230 or 125 Ultrium tape drive to a K4XX or K5XX unix server? The server is running HP-UX 10.20 and 11.0. Please provide part number for the tape unit and cables required.

Thanks!!

Hello,

Unfortunately this cannot be done. All external and internal Ultrium drives are LVD Wide SCSI-2. Your K's HBA on the Core IO is HVD.

There are HVD Ultrium drives connecting to the autoloader 1/9 and tape libraries, but to my knowledge, no standalone Ultrium drives are HVD.

HTH,
Vince

Can you not purchase a High Voltage HBA for the K-class to work with a standalone Ultrium drive?
