Question about adaptec AIC-7892 Ultra 160 SCSI adapter

Post by Reynal » Sat, 19 Jul 2003 04:00:39

Hi everyone,

I need some advice about a tape storage that will be connected to the
adaptec AIC-7892 Ultra 160 SCSI adapter. Currently there is a broken HP
Surestore TX 20 connected to it but as it is broken I need to find a new
one that will be compatible.

As I've little knowing about SCSI I've looked through the HP website to
find an internal tape storage that could fit my need and I've found 2
models. The problem is that I'm not sure which one to take because the
connections seems to differs: the HP SureStore DAT40i is said to be
"Ultra Wide SCSI - 68 pin HD D-Sub (HD-68)", and the HP SureStore DAT
24i is "Fast SCSI - 50 PIN IDC". My problem is to know which one is
Ultra 160 SCSI and will be cable compatible with my scsi adaptater
(dat40i is 68pin and dat24i is 50 pin...)

Anyway I could not check the existing one because it's not my server and
the owner will get crazy if I ask him to count how many "pin" there are
on the existing cable ;)

So do you have any advice for my problem ?

Thanks in advance for your answer

1. SCSI Ultra 160 mixed with 320 as a stripe disk on Adaptec 36160 - urgent (thanks)

2. BIOS problem with SCSI controller AIC 7892

Hi all,

I have a problem with a SCSI controller. I have a workstation HP Kayak
XU800, and have bought a new SCSI harddrive for it. This drive has a
capacity of 73 Gb, but my SCSI controller only recognizes appx. 4 Gb (
! )

I have found out that it is my BIOS for the SCSI controller which is
outdated, and I have tried to find an update over most of the www -
including Adaptec's and HP's own websites. Unfortunately without luck.
Does anybody by coincidence have a clue of where I can get an update?

All suggestions will be very appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
