adding SCSI driver

I have several 1600s running NT 4 terminal server with the cpq32fs2 SCSI driver. I want to add a SCSI driver, but when I open the SCSI adapter applet in control panel and select 'drivers', I get an 'error getting driver list from .INF file'. I can click 'OK', but when I go to add a driver, I do NOT get the 'Have Disk' button. Server is running fine, but problem exists on all 1600s with the cpq32fs2 configuration.

Re: adding SCSI driver

what you need to do to install the driver properly is download and run CP000744.exe which is listed as the Compaq 32-Bit SCSI Controller Driver for Windows NT 4.0. This will install the driver properly

Re: adding SCSI driver

I know that only one instance of a driver is required, but are you saying that the driver I have on my 1600 should already work on a DL360 RAID controller?

One step at a time. My 1600s use cp000744/cpq32fs2; my dl360s use
cp000742/cpqarry2. I want to test moving my NT installation from a 1600 to a dl360. To do this, I thought I would need to add the DL360 driver to the 1600 server before it is imaged so the image can be moved to and boot on a 360. Normally, I would go to the SCSI Adapters applet in CP, and add the driver, but I don't have a 'Have Disk' button. If there is an easier (or any) way to do this, please explain.

Re: adding SCSI driver

Hi,

I have had a similar problem this last week. I had a 1600 fail and had to restore onto a ML370. The 1600 was using symc810.sys but the ML used cpq32fs2.sys.

To fix this I installed a mini copy of NT onto the ML370 into a directory called winntrep on a FAT partition. I then used the backup software to restore onto the partition the 1600's full system partition. After this i booted to a dos boot disk and renamed the symc810.sys out of the way in the 1600's copy of NT. After that i copied the cpq32fs2.sys from winntrep to the 1600's nt install but called it symc810.sys. This let the system boot so I could run the Compaq System Software program to upgrade all the drivers and to fix my disk controller.

Hope this is a help to you
