Y Cable question
What is the difference between those two Y cables ?
( one is for PCI bus and the other one for MCA bus, but both are for
SCSI2 De F/W ...)
2114 ( P/N 52G0173)
2426 ( P/N 52G4234)
is there a problem if I use one instead of the other one ?
The only difference between the Micro-Channel Y-Cable(2426) and the
PCI Y-Cable(2114) is the connection to the adapter. The Micro-
Channel SCSI-2 F/W Diff Adapter has a Centronix connector. The PCI
SCSI-2 F/W Diff Adapter has a connector identical to the devices(68-
PIN connector). Therefore, you can use the PCI Y-Cable with a Micro-
Channel adapter if you get an interposer(P/N 50G0460). The interposer
converts the PIN connector to a Centronix connector. You will not be
able to use a Micro-Channel Y-Cable with the PCI adapter. There is
not an interposer that converts the Centronix connector to a pin
