Yes, otherwise you get impossible to diagnose problems caused by
reflections. You can either bum a terminator off somebody (I've got one
for a DS3100 that should work), or you might be able to terminate the
final drive in the chain directly. Some drives have a jumper you can set,
others have a resistor pack you can stick in them. I haven't checked the
DEC drives specifically.

Dunno. Mebbe the VaxStation FAQ will help:
