Teradata does not provide ESCON cables for HCAs. You must obtain ESCON cables from third-party vendors.

Cable connectors must match the port types that they plug into. PESA4 adapters require a cable with a pinless MT-RJ male connector. (See the following figure.)

For PESA4 adapters, you must order cables with pinless MT-RJ male connectors. Note that standard MT-RJ male connectors do not have pins.

The following are possible ESCON cable configurations:

  • MT-RJ/MT-RJ cable
  • MT-RJ/ESCON Duplex cable
