Anyone know if NeXT monochrome slabs have dual SCSI buses (one internal and
one external) or not? I've got one here that resolutely refuses to talk to
any internal SCSI device , but will happily talk to (and boot from, if
necessary) external devices. In fact, if anything is plugged into the
internal bus at all then the system won't even boot from an external device.
I have an SGI Iris Indigo that behaves in a similar manner iff the
external drive has any sort of termination enabled. Sort of
counter-intuitive, but by removing termination from the external drive
inclosure it's quite happy.
