W2K Recovery Console


W2K Recovery Console

Hi All

i have a ML370G2 with the SA5i Array Controller installed.
Every time i will start the Recovery Console, i have to press F6 to add the SA5i driver.

What should i do, to load the SA5i driver automatically ?

Thanks for any suggestion...

Re: W2K Recovery Console

I am assuming that you have probably resolved this one already. however this is the first time I have seen the post so I will reply.

Myself and a collegue discovered this one when we experienced a BSOD when starting the Recovery Console on a DL380G2 server. This was to do with the lack of drivers for the Compaq Array 5i controller.

To resolve the problem.....

We copied the Cpqcissm.dll and .sys files to the C:\cmdcons folder.

Next we edited the txtsetup.sif file for the recovery console and added the following entries

cpqcissm = cpqcissm.sys,4

cpqcissm = "Compaq Smart Array Conroller 5I"

Hope this helps anyway.
