  4.3. Using the DOS ASPI driver in a DOS environment

        The following is a list of commands to be used with the DOS
        ASPI driver.  The drivers are located in the \DOS directory
        of the Adaptec Ultra320 FMS NetWare diskette. Please refer
        to your NetWare documentation on how to implement it if
        needed.

        1) Add the following lines to your CONFIG.SYS:

        DEVICE=%driveletter%\ASPI320.SYS /D
        DEVICE=%driveletter%\ASPICD.SYS /D:ASPICD0

        2) Add the following lines to your AUTOEXEC.BAT:

        %driveletter%\MSCDEX.EXE /D:ASPICD0 /M:12

        NOTE: You will need to obtain the file MSCDEX.EXE from
              one of the following:

              * Microsoft's website
              * MS-DOS 6.0 and higher
              * Microsoft Windows 95/98


5. Additional Notes

The following is a list related to the software and hardware of the
Adaptec Ultra320 Host Adapters:

   5.1. Known/Unresolved Issues

        5.1.1. ASPICD.SYS does not support IDs greater than 7:

               Wide SCSI CD-ROM device IDs that are set higher
               than 7 can be scanned, but will not be accessible.

   5.2  FYI Issues

        5.2.1. NetWare 6.0 does not support SCSI CD-ROM boot 
               installation on an Ultra320 SCSI controller:

               This is an issue with the ASPI driver on the NetWare
               6.0 installation CD and can only be corrected by 
               using an alternative boot installation method with
               the proper ASPI driver (provided on this disk).

   5.3. Operating System or Technology Limitations

        5.3.1 NCMCON.CFG mismatches SCSI adapter information:

              At the server console, select List Storage Adapters
              and it will misname the 39320D as an AIC-7902, and
              an AIC-7902 as a 39320D. This issue will be addressed
              by Novell in Support Pack 1 of NetWare 6.0.

        5.3.2 NetWare server hangs when IRQs are shared:

              If another device shares the same IRQ as the SCSI
              controller, the NetWare server could hang. Try to 
              configure your system to avoid sharing IRQs.

        5.3.3 NetWare 6.0 install problem with some PCI-X systems:

              In current Intel PCI-X systems, NetWare 6.0 might
              continually reboot during installation. If this
              occurs, go to http://support.novell.com and search
              download the following file: NBI.NLM. This file needs
              to be copied into a DOS C:\NWUPDATE directory prior
              to installation. Then install as usual.

        5.3.4 NetWare 5.1 install problem with some P4 systems:

              In some Pentium 4 systems, NetWare 5.1 might
              continually reboot during installation. If this
              occurs, go to http://support.novell.com and search
              download the following files: SYMCJIT.NLM, NWMKDE.NLM
              and CSSYSMSG.NLM. These files need to be copied into
              the DOS C:\NWUPDATE directory prior to installation.
              Then install as usual.  When the option apears to add
              lines to the STARTUP.NCF, add the following lines:

              set developer option = on
              set cpu hog timeout amount = 0
 
        5.3.5 Problems partitioning drives greater than 80GB with
              NetWare 4.2:

              NetWare can make one large partition using the entire
              drive, but cannot make more than one. This is a
              Novell issue, and the workaround is to specify the
              number of cylinders for the partition instead of 
              actual bytes.

        5.3.6 NetWare does not support SCSI CD-Changer devices:

              Due to NetWare limitations, these types of devices
              are not supported.

        5.3.7 Warm swap limitation:

              During a warm swap of a drive, a bus scan (list 
              device command) is sometimes required before
              inserting the new drive. This ensures that NetWare
              properly recoginzes the change. Usually this is only
              necessary when there is no activity on the drive
              being swapped.

After your driver has been downloaded, follow these simple steps to install it.

  • Expand the archive file (if the download file is in zip or rar format).

  • If the expanded file has an .exe extension, double click it and follow the installation instructions.

  • Otherwise, open Device Manager by right-clicking the Start menu and selecting Device Manager.

  • Find the device and model you want to update in the device list.

  • Double-click on it to open the Properties dialog box.

  • From the Properties dialog box, select the Driver tab.

  • Click the Update Driver button, then follow the instructions.

Very important: You must reboot your system to ensure that any driver updates have taken effect.
