disk drive carrier for 7044-270

Post by Patrick Hawl » Wed, 06 Feb 2002 04:56:36

Hello. We recently acquired a 44p series 7044-270 system with one
internal hd. I purchased an additional hd (Seagate 15kRPM Ultra-160
80-pin lvd hd)for the system through our usual (non-IBM) source, and
this just the bare hd (w/o carrier/tray/sled).

I know I can just put this hd in rails (also requires a
68&power<->80-pin SCA adapter) and install it in the additional media
slot below the CDROM, but I would prefer to purchase a disk drive
carrier for the system and install the drive in the second internal

I am unable to locate this carrier for purchase anywhere (our IBM
sales contact/eBay/usual online IBM used outlets).

Are these impossible to find? Does IBM forbid the sale of these so as
to force one to pay $2500 for a $500 hard drive? ;)

1. Attaching external scsi-1 or scsi-2 tape drive to 44p-270 (7044-270)

I need to attach an external tape drive (exabyte 8505) to a 44p-270
for mksysb purposes, but its external scsi connector is the
mini-68-pin variety.

1. Is the external scsi bus single-ended 5v?
2. Can I attach an external scsi-1 or scsi-2 tape drive to it?
3. What kind of adapter do I need?
4. Does this  require an adapter that terminates the high byte (since
I'm going from wide to narrow)?

Guidance appreciated,
