HP9000 K200 new disks -> new problems ... 8-|

Rob Sciuk
As two of the older 4gb drives were failing the startup tests, I decided
to replace them with some Seagate 36G 68pin scsi's (not new but tested
ok), and did so. While the addresses are set (6,5,4,3) just as the
originals were, it appears that there must be some options which need to
be set, as they are all failing the start as follows in the dmesg below.
As they are consisten, I figure fix one, fix them all, but I'm not
entirely sure where to start.

One thing I suppose it might be is that the power supply needs to match a
certain device ID, as I forgot to note which power jumper supplied which
drive and re-applied them randomly ... alternately might be termination
settings or spinup settings, but I cannot decipher the error messages ...

Does this ring a bell with anyone?  Jumper settings which the HP9K insists
upon with generic seagate drives?  I assume that the machine can use 36G
drives?

Cheers,
Rob.

Welcome to the OpenBSD/hppa 4.2 install program.

This program will help you install OpenBSD. At any prompt except password
prompts you can escape to a shell by typing '!'. Default answers are shown
in []'s and are selected by pressing RETURN.  At any time you can exit this
program by pressing Control-C, but exiting during an install can leave your
system in an inconsistent state.

Terminal type? [vt100]

IS YOUR DATA BACKED UP? As with anything that modifies disk contents, this
program can cause SIGNIFICANT data loss.

It is often helpful to have the installation notes handy. For complex disk
configurations, relevant disk hardware manuals and a calculator are useful.

Proceed with install? [no] yes
Cool! Let's get to it.

You will now initialize the disk(s) that OpenBSD will use. To enable all
available security features you should configure the disk(s) to allow the
creation of separate filesystems for /, /tmp, /var, /usr, and /home.

No disks found.
# halt

Be careful.  I think the K-class servers take HVD drives, and your 36G
drives may be LVD.  Using LVD drives on a HVD controller is likely to
ruin the drives and/or controller.

Thanks, Mark ... I'll check the devices, and see if I can't scrounge some
older ones ... damn ...

AFAIK the K class machines use _High_ Voltage Differentail (HVD) Wide
SCSI for the disks. Most likely your new disks are _Low_ Voltage
Differentail (LVD) Wide SCSI. HVD SCSI is not compatible with any other
SCSI signaling. So no surprise that the LVD disks block the HVD bus.
Either get HVD disks or get a HVD to LVD signal converter.

An other option is to connect disks to the 50 pin / 8 bit narrow SCSI
bus. (The bus that the CDROM connects to.) This SCSI bus uses normal
single ended signaling. Maybe you need to disable wide negotiation on
the disks if they are wide and connected to a narrow bus.
