I received some reports about similar problems - some of them still unresolved
and some hints where to take care for (termination, firmware version, ....

Fortunately, I can get rid of the problem for the next few days. The vendor
who sold us the drives and Storage Works will take the entire disk tower in
its test/support and check it -- they are also manufacturers of Sparc
Clones have equipment, test tools an qualified people. Thus I can wait what
they will find. Now I hope they are successful analysts and that I get back
a working disk tower - plug-in and use it ----
They asked to give them all the information about the problem. This way I will
forward your hints to them.

Thank You,
Werner Frank
