external LVD drives supported under MPE/iX 7.0?

Hi,
According to the most recent information I could find, which is from 2001, and which may well be outdated by now:

> The only LVD drives supported on 7.0 are the drives
> internal to the system. For external drives, HVD is
> only option right now on 7.0.

Is this still current? Or is there a patch (or patches) for 7.0 that allow external LVD drives? If so, are we restricted to A- or N-Class systems, or will LVD work on 9x9 systems?

Thanks!

Hello Barry,

1) LVD drives are only supported on e3000 A/N-class servers. No LVD support on 9x9 servers.

2) MPE/iX 7.0 base OS provides support for external LVD drives with Interface cards A5149A (Single Port, SE/LVD Ultra2 SCSI Adapter card) and A5150A (Dual Port, SE/LVD Ultra2 SCSI Adapter card). Dual-port cards are only supported on N-class systems.

Thanks Kwan, I appreciate the reply!

One more question... assuming we have an A- or N-Class system with the appropriate adapter card, do you know if we will have any issues with an SC10 disk enclosure, or will it work just fine?

Hello Barry,

HP SureStore E SC-10 LVD/SE Disk Enclosure is not supported on MPE/iX. To host LVD/SE disks, you'll need the HP SureStore DS2100, DS2300 disk storage enclosures. For mode details on supported and unsupported devices on an A/N-class servers, refer to the MPE/iX 7.5 Communicator e3000, Chapter 5, Technical Articles, pages 86-90. The manual is available at http://docs.hp.com or direct link: http://docs.hp.com/en/30216-90336/index.html
