Termination problems are the source of many many SCSI problems. You
need to be very careful to make sure you understand exactly what the
termination requirements are of the system. Most hot-swap enclosures
have internal termination, so connecting a cable to them that is also
terminated with cause problems, as you seem to have observed.
Unfortunately, the 2200/2120 cards try really really hard to hide these
problems and make them invisible.
