I got one reply on this from alida!swj@uunet.UU.NET (Stephen W. Jay) who
suggested that perhaps I needed an active terminator on the bus. This turned out
not to be the case.

The Director has two boards inside to which the hard disks are connected and
which act to configure the scsi addresses on the drives. The drives were
configured correctly and so was the Director, except that the drives were
connected to every other connector on the board instead of in sequence ie:
instead of 1,2,3,4 the drives were connected to 1,3,5,7.

Rearranging the connectors did the trick.

Thanks to Stephen Jay for taking the time to reply.
