Not that what I wrote doesn't work, I might have overlooked the possibility of vendor conspir..er..discretion. It might be that you are expected to hook each disk into respective controller, thus all the drives have target id zero. This would make sense if the vendor counted the failure of one of controllers, in raid (1 ?) configuration. Try connect disks as such if you could locate another connector and one more scsi cable. horio shoichi _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
