Proliant 2000: CPQE5FF.CFG System Config File Needed

I have a Proliant 2000 with a Smart Array Controller. I made the mistake are removing the Smart Array controller, now I have a configuration error. When I run any of the three versions of System Configuration including the latest, I'm asked for a configuration file CPQE5FF.CFG to config the EISA array controller. I can not find this file on any disk 2 of the system configuration files or any smart start cds.

Anyone that could tell me where to file the config .CFG file or that could attach one would earn a gold star in my book. I downloaded every softpaq I can find for array controllers but can't find this config file.

This is a pretty old controller, with no marking for part numbers but *44085* and has nothing in the REV. block. I've been unable to determine what smart array controller I currently have or the revision.

Have we try to reconfigure the SCU again on the server and check again.

Thanks for the fast response.

I've tried to reconfigure using the SCU, however when I choose the Auto Configure option I am prompted for the !CPQE5FF.CFG file. If I choose to skip this, I can not configure the Smart Array controller.

If I try to manually configure using the SCU, I am again prompted for the !CPQE5FF.CFG file to setup the Smart Array controller.

Unfortunately, in the dark places of my memory, I remember having some of these issues when these Proliants were first released. The only solution is to have the correct config file, which I can not find anywhere.

Any additional help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you again.
