Hi. I have just pulled a SCSI tape drive from an old server. It was quite a bad experience because the server would not re-boot properly again after that. Ive fixed it now but Im not all that confident anymore and don't want to ruin the device when I put it in the new server.
So I would like some advice please about how to get it running in the replacement server.
"HP StorageWorks Ultrium 232" tape drive
"DELL PowerEdge 2600" with a SCSI card
Windows Server 2003 SE
Could someone take a look at some photos and tell me what to plug in where, and what else to do before rebooting. Also what to do after booting the server up. I do not have disks for either device apart from Windows Server 2003 operating system disks. The server is from an auction and tape drive was in the old server which it seems no-one has kept anything for.
Thanks a lot
