The Question is:
We have an Alpha 2100 . I would like to configure a HSD50 to this system . What

The Answer is :
The OpenVMS Wizard cannot recommend creating and utilizing a new DSSI
configuration at this time, as all such hardware and hardware support
has been long since retired. Configuration support is also rather more

connection; very slow I/O, by current standards.
Please acquire and please use (larger and faster) SCSI devices, either
in the storage enclosure within the AlphaServer 2100 or in an external
The KFPSA was the DSSI-to-PCI adapter. For details of support of this

AlphaServer 2100 series options listings.
Please contact your hardware support organization for assistance.
