    SCSI connections SCSI restrictions higher performance SCSI bus than previous SCSI buses and is more sensitive to adherence to the electrical specifications. Low-voltage differential signaling specifications are described in the SCSI Parallel Interface-2 (SPI-2) document and in the Electrical Characteristics of Low Voltage Differential Signaling (LVDS) Interface Circuits TIA/EIA-644 document.

  • Page 208: Scsi Bus Length Constraints, Ultra Narrow Single-ended Scsi Bus Length

    The maximum cable length for a Ultra Wide Low-Voltage Differential SCSI bus is 12 meters. The HP workstation c-class uses 1 meter of this maximum cable length internally. This means that up to 11 meters of cable can be used for connecting external Ultra2 Wide Low-Voltage Differential SCSI devices to this workstation.

    NOTE When calculating the total Ultra2 Wide Low-Voltage Differential SCSI cable/bus/trace length used externally, remember to account for cables connecting external devices together as well as the bus length internal to those devices. Appendix B SCSI connections SCSI bus length constraints...

  • Page 210: Assigning Scsi Device Ids

    SCSI connections assigning SCSI device IDs assigning SCSI device IDs Before assigning a SCSI device ID to your drive, you need to check the existing SCSI device IDs. To determine which SCSI device IDs are available for your device, use the ioscan command in a terminal window: 1.

    assigning Ultra narrow single-ended SCSI device IDs You can determine which Ultra Narrow Single-Ended SCSI (NSE SCSI) devices are currently in use by reviewing the output from the ioscan command discussed above and looking under the “H/W Path” heading. The entry 10/0/15/0 is the built-in Ultra Narrow Single-Ended SCSI bus.
