    I need to replace a Seagate SCSI drive in my Dell PowerEdge 1600 Server in a Raid Array. I got another drive of the same size, but it is an IBM SCSI p/n 33P3377 for their eServer xSeries systems. Problem is I cannot find any information on how to configure the SCSI id for the drive. There is a 6 position jumper block on the edge next to the SCSI signal and Power connectors, and a 12 position block on the circuit board. There is a diagram on the label showing 12 option jumper positions, but no indication of orientation. Any pointers as to where I can find some documentation on the jumper setup for this drive?

    Good luck, all I can say is experiment, experiment, experiment.
    Information is extremly spartan. I see you've been here too.
    I'd recomend calling someone from the manufacturer. Looks like you've got an antiquated drive.
    Looks like an old IBM that is now part of Hitachi??? Very confused lines of support.

    Look here, there has to be something similar under "Harddisks", "IBM", that
    matches your drives config.
    Invest a little time and energy in a well thought out BACKUP regimen and you will have minimal down time, and headache.
