Using both at the controller end will also cause you problems.
I feel this reply makes the matter more confusing to the recipient. In the A2091, the card based terminator is not optional for a regular user, as the terminator packs are soldered in. In my opinion in this case it is better to recommend that no additional termination is done on the A2091, instead an unterminated end of the internal scsi cable should be connected.
