SCSI Standards

  Steve N 14:47 11 Aug 2003

I have a HP Netserver E200 Server with an Adaptec AHA-2940UW Adapter which supports SCSI-1, SCSI-2, SCSI-3, WIDE UltraSCSI.

I need to purchase a new SCSI HDD as the one we have is running very low on disk space. What I want to know is if standards are backwards compatible. If I buy a SCSI Ultra 320 or 160 will it work with this adapter card? If not what type drives do i need to buy?

Thanks in Advanced

yes it will but you are wasting money!

your scsi card only supports 40 mbit/sec transfer and U160 (LVD) and U320 are clearly much faster.

basically any 68 pin scsi drive will work at your cards speed (assuming your version of the card has 68 pin internal connector).

i have two 80 pin 9 gig scsi drives and 68/80 adaptors that i have just removed from one of my sytems. they would work.

get in touch by e-mail if you want any more advice.
