Yes, it's supported. It talks MSCP to the VAX, so that's no problem.

The UC07 can be configure to use either disks or tapes, but _not_
at the same time. (the UC08 has 2 SCSI controllers for that purpose..)

It has an on-board diag/setup program. Here's how to access

>>> I
>>> D/P/W 20001F40 20
>>> D/P/L 20088000 80000000
>>> D/P/L 20088004 80000001
>>> D/P/W 2000XXXX 1
>>> D/P/W 2000YYYY 3003
>>> D/P/W 2000YYYY 4401
>>> S 80

XXXX and YYYY are offsets depending on the address of the controller.

Please forgive me if there are any typo's

I have an UC07in my 3600 and it works great. I just had a 
small problem with an IBM DORS SCSI drive. It would be detected
OK and I could set it up with the diagnostics, but the VAX wouldn't
boot from it. It seemed like some initialisation problem of the UC07 
and the IBM drive.

I swapped it with a HP drive and this works fine.

								Bye Arno.
