I have just picked up five of these Seagate SCSI drives. I am having a
devil of a time getting them to work with the Adaptec 1542B controllers
I have. So far, I have tried three different controllers and all five
of the Seagate drives. I managed to get them to Self Test, and all of
them successfully low-level formatted. I accomplished that using DOS
I tried formatting a dew of them for DOS, and that seemed to go OK.
When I try and set them up for NetBSD (both release and -current) I get
a lot of Status 16 and Status 1A messages. I think it is because of one
of the jumpers on the hard drive, but I don't have any docs for the
drives. Does anybody have the jumper info for the drive?
Sometimes the probe goes OK, sometimes it doesn't. Once (and only once)
I got the sd0e partition to newfs. I have been at this for three days
and am really starting to get bugged by it.
I have tried all of the suggestions from the FAQ (surprise!) and none of
them helped. I even double and triple checked the termination, but
nothing seems to help....
