                            (3/19/2008)

==================================================================================

This is the v5.0 drivers software release for IBM iSCSI Server Adapters for IBM 
eServer System x modular systems.


This software release supports the following System x adapters:

Option 39Y6146: QLogic iSCSI Single Port PCIe HBA for IBM System x (QLogic QLE4060C)

Option 42C1770: QLogic iSCSI Dual Port PCIe HBA for IBM System x (QLogic QLE4062C)

Option 30R5201: IBM iSCSI Server TX Adapter (QLogic QLA4050C)

Option 30R5501: IBM iSCSI Server SX Adapter (QLogic QLA4050)

Option 73P3601: IBM iSCSI Server Adapter (QLogic QLA4010C)


The adapters are used as iSCSI hardware initiators in IBM eServer System x servers.

The iSCSI Target platforms supported include xSeries Total Storage DS300, System x
Total Storage DS3300, and System i i5 iSCSI Target solutions.

This software release supports Microsoft Windows 2003 and Windows 2008 for both 
x86/IA32 and x64/AMD64 platforms.

The Windows drivers are Microsoft digitally signed.

This package does not include Linux drivers software. Instead, a link is provided for
end users to download the software from a QLogic support URL created specifically for
IBM System x iSCSI adapters.

Note that the official 64-bit support for x64/AMD64 is dependent on the iSCSI Target.
xSeries Total Storage DS300 and iSeries i5 iSCSI solutions support only 32-bit.
System x Total Storage DS3300 supports both 32-bit and 64-bit.

Windows 2000 is NOT supported.

2.0   Installation and Configuration
____________________________________

Refer to the readme or install files that are provided for each driver or software or
read the Quick Start Guide.

For any silent install/update setup, please read the Silent Install.txt file.

The executable file is self-extracting and can be executed under the Windows 
operating system. 


   2.1  Package specific installation instruction
       This update is packaged as a self-extracting PackageForTheWeb (PFTW) 
       executable file. To use this update your TEMP environment variable 
       must be set to a path with read/write access. You must be logged in 
       as an administrator.
       
       The command-line syntax for PackageForTheWeb executable device driver 
       update package is: 
      
       Package.exe [-s] [-a [-s] | [-x directory] | [-?] ]
      
       [-s] This command installs an update silently and does not notify you 
       if your files need to be over written in the %temp% directory. 
       
       [-a] This command passes all subsequent commands to the install 
       package.
      
       [-s] This second -s command installs the update silently and 
       unattended.
      
       [-x directory]  This command extracts the update files to a directory
       named directory. The PackageForTheWeb executable extracts itself to 
       subdirectory in the %TEMP% directory.  Extracted directories will be
       relative to that location.  Typically you must specify an absolute 
       directory.         
       
       [-?]  This command displays information about the command line 
       switches. The command  line swithces -a and -x are unattended.  Other
       command line options such as display help (-?) might require that you
       to hit any key to continue. 

       If Windows packages are run without any command line options, a GUI is
       displayed.  This GUI offers all of the options that are available 
       using the command line.

Note:  If extracted to a drive (example: c:\package), the drivers can 
be installed via Microsoft Windows device manager.


Configuration Notes:
====================

The new PCIe 39Y6146 and 42C1770 HBAs support both IPv4 and IPv6.  Support for 
multiple sessions to the same DS3300 target device is supported.
