SSA cable and adapter

SSA cable and adapter

Post by myco » Sat, 04 Aug 2001 05:04:58



We currently have 2 PCI SSA Multi-Initiator/RAID EL adapter in a 7026-H50.
One adapter is connected to a 7133-020 with 4 black SSA cables (32H0097).
We are in the process of getting a 7133-D40 and planning on connecting it to
the 2nd adapter.
2 Questions:
1.  Any compatibility issue between the above adapter and 7133-D40?
2.  Can the same type of black SSA cables be used between the two? Or blue
ones only.
Keep getting difference answers from IBM tech.
Thanks in advance.

Hi,

Check out http://www.hursley.ibm.com/~ssa/faq.html#configuration
And, actually http://www.hursley.ibm.com/~ssa/rs6k is a good source of
information.

1. Source for SSA cables and adapters?

I recently bought a 7133-500 and now I need to locate some SSA cables.
The only ones I have found say they're for the 3527 only.  Since I've
never seen a 3527 I don't know if they really use the same cables or
not.  Anyone know of a good source for SSA cables and perhaps some PCI
SSA adapters too?
