Re: TSMC not working with Fiber and modular data router

Hi Cheib
Hope you are wel, unfortunetly I have some problems with TSMC, but on a Proliant ML370 and of course Fiber Channel.I test it with a 1850R that works fine.
I would like to know , did you use a Smart Array 5300 ?
Thanks for your answer

Re: TSMC not working with Fiber and modular data router

Hi Cheib
Okay now I am sure this is a problem due to the smartArray 5300.I tried to use an Adaptec 2944UW and a TL891 directly attach to it and TSMC hangs my NT server.
So I'll try today to work on this problem.Do you have a contact at Compaq technical support ?
Do you ask it a solution ?
I let you inform about my test
Have a nice day

Re: TSMC not working with Fiber and modular data router

Hi Cheib
I found a solution to my problem and I hope that will be the same solution for you.
Okay so let me explain you
I used a ML370 with a Smart Array 5300 and SmartStart 4.90.When I started TSMC
my server hangs.
So I found a new SSD version on the web site compaq Version 2.22 here is the link
http://www.compaq.com/support/files/server/us/download/9257.html
the patche name is sp14439.exe
I installed it and now there is no problem that work fine.So during the upgrade all the scsi driver are updated and the cpqfcalm.sys was updated.
I hope that will help you
let me know about the result
have a nice day

Hi Daniel,

TSMC ... i have posted a request on our compaq specialist, and will see what they can do ....

Re: TSMC not working with Fiber and modular data router

there have been lots of calls over this. Upgraded 5300 Array Driver ( Cpqcissm.sys Version: 4.22.74) on SmartStart Release 5.0.
This should fix your problem
