Configuring the Adaptec SCSI controller settings to work with tape backup devices. - Technical Tip - 117551




Configure the Adaptec SCSI controller to work with tape backup devices.

Press <CTRL+A> during the boot process to enter the SCSI BIOS configuration utility. This applies to the Adaptec 7860 or the 7880 controllers, where the tape device is attached. Then select SCSI Disk Utilities and confirm what SCSI ID the unit resides on. Press <ESC> and select Configure/View Host Adapter Settings. Then follow these steps:

1. Press the <F6> key to restore the defaults.

2. Under additional options, choose SCSI device configuration. Then alter the Max Synch Transfer Rate for the SCSI ID of the tape unit and the CD-ROM. Set the level to as low as possible.

3. On the same page, for Send Start Unit Command set the value for NO for the tape device and the CD-ROM.

4. Then press <ESC> and save the changes.
