Can I fit a tape
drive (or other device) into the top left bays of PC Server
You can fit a tape drive into the B
bays of PC Server 500. A 3 drop cable runs from the C bank
backplane to the CD-ROM (which is on the first drop). The
second drop is available for use in bank B and the third drop
carries a SCSI terminator.
Bank C is
pre-wired to use ID's 0-5, the CD-ROM is ID 6 and the SCSI
adapter is ID 7. Therefore, if you install a device in bank B
you will use an ID that is intended for Bank C so you can't
install a drive in the corresponding position in Bank C.
Mechanically, half height units will fit in bay B1,
full-height devices will require the removal of the "glove
box" as well as the bezel of B1 to free up the entire space.
