I need to find out about the ST506 cables for an Emulex DM01 QBUS
card. I've just got one with no cables. I understand that it's
similar to other Emulex MSCP cards (makes sense really) but it has a
50-pin cable to connect the drives up. Anyone know how to make up a
cable for this? Or even, got a spare cable?
Jerome Fine replies:
Making up the cable is actually rather easy in this case.
But my cable is buried somewhere at the moment. Basically,
34 lines are used for the 34 pin edge connector (daisy
chained if there are 2 drives) and the remaining 16 lines
are split into 2 groups of 8 lines, one for each of the
two 20 pin edge connectors, i.e. one for each drive. The
DM01 supports two MFM drives. If no one replies in a day
or two, I will try and locate my cable and specify exactly
how the connectors are set up.
Did you ever turn this cable up? And does anyone know if the DM01
controller will be compatible with the breakout board and 50-pin plug in
a BA23 enclosure?
