Q1: What's the model number of the 18GB Seagate Barracuda you attach
to a SunSwift adapter?
No definitive reply, but according to:
It looks as though the model I need should have a 'W' on the end,
therefore the model number would be: ST118273W
Q2: Preferred termination?
Forced perfect termination, and a plug for "Granite Digital" cables.
Given the problems I've had with SCSI cables, this is one I'll
investigate further ;-)
[Aside and question: I've heard that you are supposed to use the
same termination on both ends of a cable ... does that mean you
disconnect & replace internal termination?]
Q3: What st.conf values?
Oops, of course what I meant was what format.dat entry ;-) format(1M)
provides these values if you query the drive.
Q4: Anecdotes, comments, patches?
A possible recollection of a large file system bug pre 2.5.1. Lots of
people using the 9s etc. Guess I'll wait and find out ;-)
