dlt4000s on d class server

we have a D350 server and have been trying to install a dlt4000s to it. The dlt4000s is an external box made by TTI and distributed by HP with 7980S emulation.
When connected to the se-scsi port on the back of the D class the unit does'nt see it upon searching. We have tried changing id's and switches on the back to no avail. even when connected on its own so their are no conflicts it is still not seen. The same drive can be attached and seen without any problems on k class servers, C class workstations and even a pc. I know the external port is good as it sees other devices attached to it ok.
Does anyone have one of these drives attached succesfully to a D class server or know if it will work.

thanks

Re: dlt4000s on d class server

Andrew,

When connecting to the K-Class, C-Class, and a PC, are those interfaces also SE SCSI? My recollection is that the DLT4000S is a FWD SCSI interface. On the D-Class it would be supported on the A4107A FWD SCSI-2 interface.

HTH,

Dave
