Jolanda:

You should not need any drivers for the Fabric Switch 6. It is just an interconnect that allows communication between the host and the storage.

As far as I can remember, there were no drivers needed for the switch for any Windows OS, but it was soo long ago that I had even seen a Fabric Switch 6, I could be mistaken.

Since the unit is retired now, is there any chance to get a upgrade? Might make things easier, better, more reliable, more flexible, etc.

It might not have what your looking for, but is worth a try.

Jolanda,
I believe What you are looking for is the notification driver for the switch. It used to install with the HBA driver on the
MSA support CD.

Check the appropriate HBA driver on the CD. You can uncompress the HBA smart component.

Hi Jolanda

You need to install this driver (if you are using an Emulex LP 950 HBA)
I have installed it on my w2k3 server and all works fine.
Else you need the scsi driver (not storport)

good luck
