Preparing the SCSI Devices
Preparing the SCSI Devices
Setting up SCSI devices typically involves setting SCSI IDs and
termination, mounting internal SCSI devices inside your computer,
and connecting power cables to each SCSI device.
Setup varies for different kinds of SCSI devices. Always refer to the
device’s documentation for specific instructions. In general, to
prepare SCSI devices for setup:
■
Check the SCSI IDs—The PowerDomain 2930 and each SCSI
device you connect to it requires a unique SCSI ID from 0 to 7.
The PowerDomain 2930 is preset to ID 7 and should not be
changed. The IDs for internal SCSI devices are usually set with
jumpers; external SCSI devices are usually set with a switch on
the back of the device.
■
Terminate the Ends of the SCSI Bus—To ensure reliable
communication on the SCSI bus, the SCSI device at the end of
each cable, or the end of the cable itself, must have a terminator
installed (or enabled). Terminators must be removed or
disabled on SCSI devices that are connected between the ends
of each cable.
If you are installing internal SCSI devices, see Connecting Internal
SCSI Devices on page 6.
If you are installing external SCSI devices only, close your
computer cabinet, and see Connecting External SCSI Devices on
page 10.
Connecting Internal SCSI Devices
To connect internal SCSI devices:
1 Turn off the computer, disconnect the power cord, and ground
yourself by touching the chassis.
2 Verify that each internal SCSI device you are installing has a
unique SCSI ID from 0 to 6. Refer to the SCSI device’s
documentation to determine the ID setting.
Note: If any two SCSI devices (internal or external) have the same
SCSI ID, change the ID on one device. The PowerDomain 2930 is
preset to SCSI ID 7 and should not be changed.
6
Connecting Internal SCSI Devices
3 If you are installing one internal SCSI device only, terminate
that SCSI device. If you have two or more internal SCSI devices,
terminate the device that will be connected to the end of the
cable.
For more information on termination, refer to the SCSI device’s
documentation.
4 Mount each SCSI device in an available drive bay inside your
computer, as shown in the next figure. Refer to the
documentation for your computer and SCSI devices for
installation instructions.
Note: If space is limited inside your computer, you may
have difficulty connecting SCSI and power supply cables
to your SCSI devices once they’re installed. Consider
completing these connections (Step 5 on page 8) before
installing the devices.

To connect more than two internal SCSI devices, you will need
an internal SCSI cable with enough connectors for all devices.
6 Connect the other end of the cable to the last internal SCSI
device, as shown in the next figure. This SCSI device must be
terminated. (See Step 5 on page 11.)
Make sure Pin 1 on the cable aligns with Pin 1 of the internal
SCSI device connector. Pin 1 is usually designated by a “1” or
small triangle.

Connecting External SCSI Devices
Connecting External SCSI Devices
To connect external SCSI devices:
1 Turn off the computer, disconnect the power cord, and ground
yourself by touching the chassis.
2 Verify that each external SCSI device you are installing has a
unique SCSI ID from 0 to 6. Refer to the SCSI device’s
documentation to determine the SCSI ID setting.
Note: If any two SCSI devices (external or internal) have
the same SCSI ID, change the ID on one device. The
PowerDomain 2930 is preset to SCSI ID 7 and should not
be changed.
For most external SCSI devices, the SCSI ID is set with a switch
on the back of the device, as shown.

5 If you are installing only one external SCSI device, terminate the
device.
Termination is usually controlled by installing or removing a
SCSI terminator. On some SCSI devices, you use a switch or
button on the back of the SCSI device. Refer to the
documentation for your SCSI device for termination instructions.

7 Connect all power cables to the external SCSI devices and the
computer.
8 Turn on all external SCSI devices and allow them to power up.
Then turn on the computer.
9 Install any software included with your SCSI devices.
Troubleshooting
If you encounter any problems after installation, check the
following items first:
■
Are all SCSI devices powered on?
■
Are all SCSI cables and power cables properly connected?
■
Is the PowerDomain 2930 firmly seated and secured in the PCI
expansion slot? Turn off the power before checking the card.
■
Does each device on the SCSI bus have a unique SCSI ID?
■
Is the SCSI chain properly terminated? Refer to your device
documentation and to the related sections in this User’s Guide.
If you are still unable to resolve a problem, refer to the Adaptec
