Are you sure it is SCSI?  2920 sounds real familiar, I think 
we had a 2920 at work, and the interface was proprietary.  
Just because it has 50-pin connectors does not mean it is SCSI.

There were a couple outfits that made controllers for it.  I 
think we had an Aviv Q-bus controller for ours.
I still have that board.
