MSA1000 x64 support

Hi,


Is there drivers support for window 2003 x64 platform? We are currently running a pilot project for OS migration from Windows 2003 x32 to x64 platform. The drivers we received with SAN system doesn't support x64 OS.

Highly appreciated if anyone knows their existence or availability timescale.

Thanks

Re: MSA1000 x64 support

Hi,

according to the latest SAN Design Reference Guide, the MSA1000 is supported under Windows 2003 x64 Enterprise with SP1. You will probably need to download the latest HBA drivers for x64 Windows (Storport)

For Multipathing, it looks like you will need securepath for the moment, as I cannot find any MPIO module for the MSA that supports x64 Windows. SecurePath 4.0C SP2-1 has introduced x64 support for the MSA1000/1500.

Regards,
Stephen
