Re: HELP! HW problems, no ablitiy to boot



I was thinking it could be a termination issue, but I have a
terminator on the last connector of the cable.  The setup (which was
working before a drive went) was thus: drive 1, drive 2, terminator
(active, I believe).  Drive 2 is the one that died so there is a non-
used connector between the terminator and drive 1.  The drives are
SCA-2 drives, so I have to use an adapter and actual terminator since
the drives do not appear to be self-terminating.  Would that unused
connector between drive 1 and the terminator be the problem?
