We're looking at a DS10 to replace an MV3100-86 system. The customer
uses a TSZ05 tabletop magtape drive, and that device needs to be
operable with the DS10 as well. It is a 50-pin centronic connected
narrow SCSI unit.
We've spec'd the DS10 with a KZPCA controller for the internal disks
and DAT tape drive. We need a second controller for the external
drive. Is there any preference (other than price) between a KZPCA and
a KZPBA for this usage? Should the cables or adapters to connect the
narrow drive be relatively easy to get?
The KZPAA is not listed as a supported option for DS10s, apparently,
or I'd use one of those with cables we have on hand.
Thanks for any info.
