HP StorageWorks Fibre Channel Array Notification Driver

We installed this on two servers that are currently running an SMI-S provider for the cluster MSA1000 unit. What is the purpose of this driver? It does not appear to give any more information. Should we install it or not?

I think you'll get a clear idea of this on the official website:

Re: HP StorageWorks Fibre Channel Array Notification Driver

I'm looking for the purpose of the Fibre Channel Array Notification Driver.

We don't see any use for this...can someone tell me if it is worth deploying?

Re: HP StorageWorks Fibre Channel Array Notification Driver

From the description:

"The HP StorageWorks Fibre Channel Array Notification Driver for Windows Server 2003 enables storage management of the StorageWorks RA4x000 and MSA1000/MSA1500 by Insight Manager and provides event notification to the Windows Server 2003 system event log and the HP ProLiant Integrated Management Log. "

Note ...provides event notification...

You will be informed about issues.

Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.
