U320 LVD backward to ultra wide scsi-3 (SE) ?

U320 LVD backward to ultra wide scsi-3 (SE) ?

Post by stiznoi » Fri, 17 Jun 2005 07:10:11


i have a sun ultra 10 that has a Kingston Drivebay Subsystem
that holds 6 or 8 scsi disks.

i think it's a standard 68-pin scsi connector on the inside

the disks in there now look like your standard pc disks...

quantum viking II 68-pin ultra wide scsi

and

quantum atlas 10K III 68-pin ultra wide scsi...

basically what i'm asking is if you take a NEW scsi disk

which is U320 ... that is 68-pin and LVD instead of SE scsi-3 ...

will it work?

thanks very much.

You mean Maxtor or better yet Sun. Even better save some time and
just plug in the new disk & start using it.

Well - there aren't any voltage mismatches that would blow anything into
little pieces...

The OP says (in part):-
"basically what i'm asking is if you take a NEW scsi disk

will it work?"

Yes it stands a fighting chance of working (but at 40 MBytes/sec, not
U320).
If you could upgrade your controller, then you could do much better.

It is quite certain a LVD disk will work on a SE controller. There are no LVD
disks without SE support. Stop trolling.

Not if the connections in the drive bays or on the SCSI controller are LVD incompatible.

In general.


Which may have to be forced if the connections are LVD incompatible
(diffsens line missing).


Boden trolling?

And that 40MB/sec. for many purposes will be sufficient.


NO, only some better for a single drive and usage dominated by large
sequential transfer.

For upto Ultra160, not Ultra320.

At risk of being accused of trolling...
then the OP's new disk isn't going to work is it?
