Adaptec 29160 on HP9000 L1000 server

Hi,

How do I load the module/driver for the Adaptec 29160 PCI device on HP-UX 11.00?

My system is a 9000/800/L1000-44

TIA,
Ivan

Hi Ivan,

HP only release drivers for it's own equipment.
So IF there's a driver available it would have to come from Adaptec.
So I looked it up on the adaptec.com site

http://www.adaptec.com/worldwide/support/techspecs.jsp?sess=no&language=English+US&prodkey=ASC-29160&cat=%2fProduct%2fASC-29160#suppOS

and only SCO & Sun show up as supported UNIX OS's. In fact none of their "server class" HBAs showed HP-UX support. So I think you're out of luck here.

Rgds,
Jeff

Thanks Jeff.

Guess its impossible to recompile it for hp-ux because kernel headers and other needed files are not open, right?

Anyway, I will try to use the SCSI interface that is already installed on this system, but I will have to buy a VHC-SCSI to SCSI in order to interconnect my jamaica external storage.

Thank anyway.

Hi Ivan,

Well you can install that HBA & then run
ioscan -fnC ext_bus
and see what status it shows. If it's CLAIMED your good to go, but if it's UNKNOWN, NO_HW or such then you're probably out of luck. But it won't hurt to try.

Rgds,
Jeff

Thanks again Jeff,

The ioscan only shows the SCSI devices I already have installed and working. I used SAM once and found out that the Adaptec was showing as UNKOWN or UNCLAIMED.

Guess I am really out of luck.

Thanks anyway for all your support.
I really apreciated that.
