Reconfiguring DSSI hardware?

» close window

The Question is:

I have to remove the 2nd alpha 4100 Server and
the Vax4000-300, so it leaves me just 1 Alpha4100 server which i connect (dssi)
 to the
Sw800 first Hscp01 controller.
1) Question:
As the Vax is removed from the 2nd controller
do I need to terminate this 2nd controller   port, or can i leave it open and
 still be dual redundant with only one controller connected
with 1 alphaServer 4100.
Kind Regards

The Answer is :

  Yes, a DSSI bus does require proper termination.  That said, there are
  a variety of ways that DSSI buses and DSSI controllers can be connected.
  Please contact your hardware support organization for assistance in
  reconfiguring your DSSI bus and your system hardware.
