==================================
        Version History
==================================


-------------------------
Changes in Service Pack 3
-------------------------

Windows 2000:

  ADPU160M.SYS, ADF6U160.SYS

	Fixed Issue: 

	1.With non-disk device such as HP Ultrium Tape drive, the driver did
	not negotiate transfer rate, all subsequent IO transfers occurred
	as Async.

	2.Tape IO Test certification failure fix.
	  


Win98_ME:

 Added \Win98_ME folder and u160m driver from FMS4.0 SP1a.

-------------------------
Changes in Service Pack 2
-------------------------

NetWare v4.2/5.x:

  All HAM and DDI files (Ultra, Ultra2 and Ultra160)

    - A completely rewritten OSM layer to remove the redundant CDA layer (provides 
      better peformance and maintainability).
    - Provides a single OSM and CHIM source code base for all the drivers.
    - Compatibility with NetWare 4.x and 5.x with the proper CSP’s (no support for 
      NetWare 3.x).

-------------------------
Changes in Service Pack 1
-------------------------

Windows 95/98:

  AIC78XX.MPD (Ultra only)

    Added Feature: Added support for the AHA-3944AUWD host adapter.

Windows NT 4.0:

  AIC78XX.SYS and AIC78U2.SYS (Ultra and Ultra2)

    Fixed Issue: Fixed blue screen error when accessing a tape device with a bad
    tape cartridge.

  AIC78U2.SYS (Ultra2 only)

    Fixed Issue: An event on the PCI bus could occur where an Adaptec Ultra2
    host adapter may fail to respond to a PCI GNT# within 16 clock cycles.
    This will only happen when the master and target on the PCI bus are doing
    64-bit transfers.

    Fixed Issue: SCSI bus starvation was occurring when the bus was fully loaded
    with devices. It was found that commands were timing out for devices that
    had lower SCSI ID values.

  ADPU160M.SYS (Ultra160 only)

    Fixed Issue: The termination setting for channel B on the AIC-7899 was being
    set incorrectly. The problem is seen only on motherboards in which the
    AIC-7899 has been designed to control the termination for channel A and B.
    Motherboards that do not use the AIC-7899 to control the termination of the
    bus will not see this problem.  Adaptec host adapters do not exhibit this
    problem either.

    Fixed Issue: With five Ultra160 Adaptec host adapters installed in a system,
    the system will blue screen right before the login screen.

Windows 2000:

  AIC78U2.SYS (Ultra2 only)

    Fixed Issue: The host adapter's SCSI ID in the registry does not correspond
    to the host adapter's ID set in the BIOS SCSI-Select Utility. Under Windows
    NT 4, everything behaves correctly. After trying various configurations with
    different SCSI adapters and driver versions, it appears that the failing
    case occurs under Windows 2000 when no INT13 devices are attached and the
    SCSI BIOS is disabled.

    Fixed Issue: An event on the PCI bus could occur where an Adaptec Ultra2 host
    adapter may fail to respond to a PCI GNT# within 16 clock cycles.  This will
    only happen when the master and target on the PCI bus are doing 64-bit
    transfers.

    Fixed Issue: SCSI bus starvation was occurring when the bus was fully loaded
    with devices. It was found that commands were timing out for devices that had
    lower SCSI ID values.

  ADPU160M.SYS (Ultra160 only)

    Fixed Issue: The termination setting for channel B on the AIC-7899 was being
    set incorrectly. The problem is seen only on motherboards in which the
    AIC-7899 has been designed to control the termination for channel A and B.
    Motherboards that do not use the AIC-7899 to control the termination of the
    bus will not see this problem.  Adaptec host adapters do not exhibit this
    problem either.

NetWare v4.2/5.x

  AHA2940.HAM (Ultra only)

    Added Feature: Added support for the AHA-2940UW Pro. Note that this is the
    first FMS release that will contain a HAM driver for the Ultra/Legacy Adaptec
    products.

  AHA2940.DDI (Ultra only)

    Added Feature: Updated the driver definition information file for NetWare
    NWPA.

  AIC78U2.HAM (Ultra2 only)

    Added Feature: SAF_TE processor devices are now supported.

  ADPT160M.DDI (Ultra160 only)

    Added Feature: Updated the DDI file to support the Adaptec 29160N and
    29160LP host adapters in a fresh installation.

  ADPT160M.HAM (Ultra160 only)

    Fixed Issue: NetWare 5 installation fails installation in a system using RCC
    chipset. The failure only occurs if an Adaptec 39160 host adapter is in a
    PCI 66 MHz slot.
