Hi all !

Is is possible to prevent a DSSI disk to automatically spinup
when powered ? (SCSI disks can have this behaviour)
I have some noisy RF71 that I would like to shutdown
when I run NetBSD on my 4000-200.
Removing them physically is not a solution, since I also use them to boot

There are 3 dip switch on the disks controller cards. What did they do ?
Or is it possible to do that in the >>> prompt ?
Alternatively, is there a command on that prompt to shutdown running DSSI
disks ?

Thanks for your help,

PM, --I like VAXen, but I hate noise--
