Compaq array config utility

Hello
we upgraded our w2k server to windows 2003.
on w2k there was the compaq array config utility ( Gui).
Now we wanted to deinstall this utility.
How does this work?
thanks

Hello Michael,
you said you wanted to deinstall. Did I read it right?? You mean you don't want it on the server anymore??

Re: Compaq array config utility

hi michael

the acu and acu xe (browser based) tool use the array controller driver to communicate with the smart controller.
------------------------------------------
all you need to do is to delete the links to acu if you want to use acu xe instead
-------------------------------------------
this will leave some dead files on your disk (2 to 5 mb - i think your disk is big enough that you will not recognize this).
-------------------------------------------
all that is really important is:

keep your drivers uptodate
keep the smart fw uptodate
keep the acu xe uptodate

let the unused acu files rest in peace on your disk.
------------------------------------------
history: acu was renamed acu xe when the browser version came out. now the old acu is no longer supported and acu xe has been renamed acu.

best regards
