Possible to connect a HP DAT72 external scsi tape drive via usb?
Posted on 2010-08-31
We have a DAT72 tape drive connected to our main server. It is connected to the server by a SCSI C2362B cable.
We recently bought a HP server as a standby server but I wrongly specced it.. The only available expansion slot for it is used by the hardware RAID card, so there's no external SCSI connector.
Is there any connector that can be bought to connect a SCSI cable to a usb port?? Any alternative solutions that you can think of? (Replacing the server or buying a new tape drive are out of the question unfortunately)
