Hanging any external devices off the scsi controller on the first
io board is not recommended.

Have you tried putting your scsi drive in the other internal bay,
where a dat drive typically goes? That's what I do with my compute
server E4000's, because I don't want to dedicate an array to them...

(Also probably not recommended, but has worked fine for me.)
