SMA III Upgraded to General purpose win 2003, CVEVA Non-functional.

We upgraded one of our SMA to win 2003, after which the CVEVA is non-functional, I have a strong feeling its the drivers.

1) Card FCA2354
2) CVEVA 8.0.2
3) cvutil shows nothing, I am able to login to the CVEVA, but there are no EVA's listed.
4) Re-installed the CVEVA 8.0.2, no go.
5) Resintalled the drivers
Drivers 5.20a10//5.30a2//5.1.207
initially after the upgrade all the storage ports were shown as unknown device under device manager.
6) the Emulex utility is able to see the host ports of the EVA.

Any suggestion would be greatly helpful.

While it mentions 8 GigaBit Emulex adapters, you could try the Windows hotfix anyway.

Just a quick one on the same topic...we performed an upgrade rather than re-image, is that O.K?

An upgrade from the crippled Windows 2000?
No, I don't think that was a good idea!

No, no, the idea is to format the server and install Windows 2003 on it.
