I like Storport for W2K3 in general because of some performance enhancements in that architecture. The down-side is that some tape drives and other non-disk devices may have trouble with Storport.

Jimmy,

Storport offers many significant enhancements over Scsiport driver model.

In my opinion, you should go with Storport.

Jimmy,

If you go with the Storport driver, make sure that your server is running Windows Server 2003 SP1 as it makes some critical updates for the Storport driver.
