With nothing else in the SCSI chain, both the scanner and host adaptor
(2906) should be terminated. I believe in the BIOS for the 2906 the
termination can be set to Autoterm, Enabled, or Disabled. The default
should be Autoterm, but you may want to check to make sure it's set to
Autoterm or Enabled and not Disabled.
