Hi Ed,

The BA356 has its jumper and terminator already installed behind the
blowers, though that it has a dual channel personality module doesn't
necessarily mean the shelf is a split-bus one. If you've powered it up and
it's spun up drives 0, 2, 4 then 1,3,5 etc you just need to swap the
terminator and jumper boards. Remove the blowers on the back and the
jumper cover at the bottom (metal box, it's a pig to remove :o)) then swap
the boards over.

If I was thinking straight I could tell you how to check which board is
connected where by removing the drives and looking at the backplane, maybe
someone else will do that for me :)
