Adaptec 2100s RAID on TC2120 with Server 2003

Adaptec 2100s RAID on TC2120 with Server 2003

Hello...

We've been running an HP TC2120 with an Adaptec 2100S RAID controller in a RAID 1 configuration for some time.

We cannot seem to find any information on running the Adaptec Storage Manager software on Server 2003 for the 2100s controller. The version Adpatec offers does not run on Server 2003 (2000 only). We've tried it in 2000 compatibility mode... but it still won't run. This is very annoying, since we bought this server from HP with the Adaptec RAID and Server 2003... but have never been able to monitor the RAID without booting into the RAID controller's pre-OS interface.

Has anyone found a workaround to this problem?

hi Philodendrin

did you try this one?


Adaptec Storage Manager Windows

Let's see if that is compatible with your controller because that is compatible with my windows XP....

Karlo... so, you're saying that you're using the software you specified with a 2100S controller on an XP desktop?

Adaptec makes no mention of the 2100s in conjunction with the software you've specified.

It makes me a bit nervous to install some 30MB program on a mission critical server... for an unsupported controller.
