ASUS PCI-AS300 User's Manual
To terminate the other end of either SCSI bus, you will need to refer to the documen-
tation for the device at the end of the bus for information on how to terminate the
device. Many devices use either jumpers or a switch to set termination. Others use
resistor modules that must be removed to unterminate the device. It is critical that
the last device, and only the last device be terminated in order of all of the devices
on the bus to operate correctly. This card supplies termination power to the SCSI
bus for devices that need it.
5. Configuring the SCSI Adapter
You probably will not need to change the default configuration of the PCI-AS300
SCSI adapter. In the event that you do need to, a configuration utility, SCSISelect, is
stored on the card. This menu driven utility allows you to control the configuration
of both the SCSI adapter and its interaction with devices connected to it.
After you have installed and connected devices to the card, reassemble your system
according to the instructions in your system documentation. Once your system is
assembled, turn on your computer. You should see a SCSI BIOS banner message
listing connected devices and their ID numbers. If everything is working properly,
you can go ahead and use your system. If you need to change the SCSI adapter
configuration on the PCI-AS300, or if you want to customize the control settings for
an individual SCIS device on the bus, you can run the SCSISelect configuration
The SCSISelect Configuration Utility
To access SCSISelect, press <CTRL A> when you boot the computer, or when you
see the BIOS banner message listing the attached devices. The SCSISelect screen
will come up. Instructions on how to move the cursor and select options are at the
bottom of the program window. You can select either Configure/View Host Adapter
Settings or SCSI Disk Utilities.
