First I'll need to know a little more.

1. What's the revision of firmware on the HSZ22

try using hyperterm or the like to make a serial connection to the controller on the HSZ, use the following settings.

9600-8bit-no parity-1 stop bit.

once connected press the escape key then shift & 7 together, you should now have a menu. Go through the menu options (I can't remember which one off the top of my head) till you find the firmware revision number.

2. What version of command console have you got?

you have to use the correct version with the correct Firmware (A drag I know, but it matters).

Regards Mike.

Oh I nearly forgot, there's a password before the menu screen. You'll need it later.

The firmware revision is DIV/X and I'm using command console version 2.5.
There's your problem, get hold of command console client 2.0 or 2.1 or upgrade the firmware to DIV/Z. But be warned client 2.1 has a bug that doesn't allow you to enable write back cache on the disks. Also if you upgrade the firmware to DIV/Z you'll need win2000 or the like, because the client won't run on win95.

Also make sure you setup a virtual disk via the serail link first or you'll get nowhere fast
