  1. So, I;m used to working with IDE and never drive which only have jumpers on the end of the drive next to the power plug. I didn't realize until today that there were more jumpers underneath. I set those jumpers and the drives came up correctly, Now I have just to set up the mirroring. @Goodmaneuver , I'm using Windows NT's Disk Manager to handle the mirroring. That is how it was originally set up. @jaclaz, thank you for your help. It is much appreciated.
  2. I used SCSISelect to boot to the IBM drive. In Windows NT, I opened up disk manager and even there the Quantum drive was listed as disk 0. Anyway, I was able to format the Quantum. According to disk manager, the status of the IBM is Mirrored (Broken). So, I just need to break the mirroring and tell it to mirror to the Quantum, right?
  3. Re: termination I'll have to check to see if the Quantum drive has software termination.
  4. The IBM has no jumpers. For the Quantum, I tried putting jumpers in the first and second row from the left. (I didn't realize that there there was a map of the jumpers on the drive and went by what I saw on the web.) Both times the system saw the Quantum as drive 0 and the IBM as drive 2. The IBM drive used to be the second drive in a mirror setup, but the mirroring broke a couple of years ago. I'm planning to do software mirroring with Windows NT 4. That is how the previous set up was.
  5. I uploaded images of the two drives. The IBM is the old drive that I want to mirror to the Quantum. I'm not sure how either are configured. Could you please explain what you mean by "properly terminated"? Both of these drives or on the same cable and the termination comes after the second (Quantum) on the cable. Another quick question: According to the SCSISelect Utility, the IBM has a capacity of 8748 and the Quantum has a capacity of 8683. Will this cause be an issue? Will I need to get a different SCISI drive? Thanks for all your help.
  6. I tried using the jumpers, but the new drive is still listed as disk 0. I wonder if the drive ids are set via software. The system I'm using has a Adaptec SCSI Card 29160.
  7. I'm trying to setup mirroring on my Windows NT 4 server with SCSI drives. I plugged in a new drive and booted. For some reason it put the new, blank drive as drive 0. How can I set which drive is Drive 0? If I use jumper will that screw up the mirroring?
  8. That was the correct driver pack! We reinstalled Windows NT (after several false starts and much web research), were able to install the tape drive and restore the system. However, something still don't work. Hopefully, once I install the networking card and setup networking, everything will work. Thanks for your help.
  9. I got the file and it looks like it will work. I've been running into accessing the FTP server. Sometimes it shows up and sometimes it does not. Do they have some kind of limitation on it?
  10. Yes. I'm not 100% sure. I ran chkdsk on the main drive and it came back a-Okay, but I did not run it on the bad drive. Just to be clear the good drive will not boot, Windows say that it does not seen a bootable device. The out-of-date (and possibly bad drive) boots into Windows NT 4 without issue. That is correct, The page exists on HPE's website (https://support.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-lpg51258), but the file no longer exists. I have an HP StorageWorks DAT 40 SCSI tape drive. How would I do that? I'd done it on Windows 7 and such, but never on NT 4.0.
  11. Hi, I have an old NT4 server with mirrored SCSI drives. I got a message that the mirroring had failed. I accidentally destroyed the boot partition on one of the drives while trying to fix it. The drive that will boot is old and out of date. I do have a series of up-to-date tape backup. (The booting drive does not have drivers for the tape drive and I'm having trouble finding drivers for it.) Is it possible to fix the boot partition on the up-to-date drive? If not, how would you recommend I recover the system because it is critical for my business? Thanks
