Introduction
The DAT drive (Digital Audio Tape) DAT 72 is a magnetic tape drive for DAT 72 cartridges and
DDS3 and DDS4 cartidges (Digital Data Storage).
A cartridge is an inexpensive mass storage which is particularly suitable for creating backup copies
and archiving data.
Depending on the tape length, cartridges are automatically written in the following formats:
125 m tape length
150 m tape length
170 m tape length
DDS-3
DDS-4
DAT 72
The DAT drive is compatible with older drives and drives from other manufacturers which write to the
cartridges in standard DDS formats. The data compression of the DAT drive is carried out in DCLZ
mode (Data Compression Lempel Ziv).
Functions
Therefore, in order to operate the DAT drive the computer must have a SCSI host adapter
and the appropriate SCSI and device drivers must be installed.
i
The DAT drive is available in two models, as a 5 1/4 inch (Streamer H938) and as a 3 1/2
inch version (Streamer H939). The 3 1/2 inch version is delivered mounted in a carrier and
can be installed during operation (hot-swap). Both drives are technically identical.
DDS cartridges with a 60 m, 90 m and 120 m tape length are not supported.
The DAT drive is equipped with the following properties/functions:
●
●
●
●
●
a SCSI interface of the type Ultra2 Wide LVD/SE (Low Voltage Differential or Single-Ended).
a memory capacity of 36.0 Gbyte (without compression) or 72.0 Gbyte (with 2:1-compression).
a 68-pin Wide SCSI port
a maximum continuous data transfer rate of up to 3.5 MB per second without compression
an internal buffer of 16 MB
This manual contains all the information you require to install and operate the streamer.
To install the drive, you need some knowledge of hardware. Make sure you observe the instructions

i
Please note the information provided in the chapter "Important notes" in the Operating
Manual of the computer or in the manual "Safety and Ergonomics".
The drivers to operate SCSI devices are supplied with the SCSI host adapter. For
information on the drivers which need to be entered in the CONFIG.SYS file, please refer to
the documentation accompanying the software. In addition to these SCSI drivers you also
require device drivers for the DAT drive. These drivers are part of the package supplied
with your operating system or your backup software.
Integrating DAT drive (5 1/4 inch version)
If the DAT drive is not installed at the factory, it is supplied in a frame and requires a 5 1/4-inch bay.
It can be installed horizontally or vertically.
►
Install the DAT drive as described in "Installing a disk drive" in the Technical Manual or in the
Operating Manual for the computer.
Connecting DAT drive (5 1/4 inch version)
i
The SCSI bus must be equipped with terminators on the first and last device. With an
LVD/SE-SCSI cable (Low Voltage Differential/Single-Ended), the terminator is already
mounted on the end of the cable. With an SE-SCSI cable you require an additional
terminator when the DAT drive is connected as the last device.
Use an LVD/SE-SCSI cable if possible to achieve the high throughput rates in the LVD
mode.
Use only drives that can be operated in the LVD mode on the LVD/SE-SCSI cable if
possible. If a drive is connected in the SE mode, then all drives connected to the LVD/SESCSI cable will automatically be operated in the SE mode and the high throughput rates
will not be reached in the LVD mode.

DAT 72 (DDS Gen5) 36/72 GBYTE
Handling magnetic tape cartridges
Use only magnetic tape cartridges indicated with "DAT 72". The logo guarantees that the cartridges
are suitable for recording data. Although magnetic tape cartridges do not require any special
maintenance, some basic rules should be followed:
i
Avoid subjecting the tape cartridges to high temperatures or direct sunlight.
The cartridges are not to be stored or operated in high-humidity.
The cartridges are not to be placed near magnetic fields.
As a rule, new cartridges should be wound forward once to the end of the tape and
rewound to the beginning, and clean the drive then with a cleaning cartridge designed for a
DAT 72 drive.
Do not switch off the computer or remove a cartridge from the drive while the cartridge is
being accessed.
Never touch the magnetic tape. The contact protection must always cover the opening for
the read/write heads.
Use only standard labels and stick only one label onto the part intended for labels.
Failure to observe these basic rules can endanger the operability of your DAT drive.
Using Write-protection
Write protection enables you to protect a magnetic tape cartridge against inadvertent overwriting or
deletion. When the tape cartridge is write-protected, the system can read data, but can neither
overwrite nor delete data.
Write protection is provided by a plastic slide which can be moved to the left or right.

DAT 72 (DDS Gen5) 36/72 GBYTE
Loading a cartridge
!
When inserting the magnetic tape cartridge, ensure that the label side is facing up. The
side on which the tape is visible must be on the right.
►
Open the drive bay.
►
Push the magnetic cartridge into the drive until it is pulled in automatically.
Unloading a cartridge
!
►
Do not remove the cartridge as long as the DRIVE indicator is lit. This could result in data
loss.
Push the eject button.
It may take a few seconds until the cartridge is ejected.
►
Remove the tape cartridge from the drive.
Emergency unload of magnetic tape cartridge
!
►
Emergency removal can cause data loss on the cartridge. Only use this procedure if the
cartridge cannot be ejected any other way!
Press the Eject button for at least five seconds.
The cartridge will be ejected after approx. 40 seconds regardless of its status.
Emergency removal is still possible if the eject button has been disabled with the SCSI command
PREVENT MEDIA REMOVAL.

Troubleshooting
For PRIMERGY servers:
Device will not be recognised during BIOS interrogation
►
Check whether the SCSI BIOS is activated. You can set this entry in the system BIOS.
►
Check that the SCSI cable is properly connected to the SCSI controller and drive, and that
none of the pins in the connector are bent.
►
Check that the cable for the power supply is correctly connected.
►
Check whether the setting of the SCSI ID is correct. The SCSI ID of the drive must not be egal
with the SCSI ID of the SCSI controller or other SCSI devices.
►
Check whether the system BIOS of the PRIMERGY server and the SCSI BIOS of the SCSI
controller is up to date.
►
If possible, carry out a self-test of the drive.
►
Remove the tape from the drive.
►
Restart your PRIMERGY server and ensure that the drive will be recognised during BIOS
interrogation.
The drive should now be ready for operation.
Device does not accept a medium
►
Check whether the drive must be cleaned.
►
Use a new medium and check whether it is accepted.
The medium cannot be written
►
Check whether the write protection of the medium is activated.
►
Check whether the drive must be cleaned.
►
Use a new medium and check if it is accepted and if a write process is possible.
For PRIMERGY servers under Microsoft Windows Server 2003 or Microsoft Windows 2000:
Device not recognized by Device Manager (Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003)
►
Make sure that the drive is detected during the BIOS interrogation.
►
Check that you are using the correct approved Windows drivers for the SCSI controller and
drive.
►
Check whether a yellow exclamation mark or a red cross is shown in the Device Manager next
to an SCSI controller or a tape device. If so, uninstall and reinstall the drivers.
Device not detected by backup software
►
Check whether the drive is recognised by the device manager.
►
Shut down the backup software
►
Check that you are using the newest drivers for the drive
►
Check that you are using the newest version of the backup software
