QLA12160 - QLogic Ultra 160M PCI Dual SCSI Adapter QL12160 HAM Driver for NetWare 4.X/5.X This release has been tested with Novell NetWare version 4.11 and 5.0. The QLogic QL12160 HAM driver supports the QLogic QLA12160 PCI SCSI host adapters. This document is divided into 7 Sections Section 1 NetWare files on this disk. Section 2 Installation of NetWare onto a SCSI disk. Section 3 Adding a QLogic Adapter to an existing system. Section 4 Novell NetWare support of QL12160.HAM driver. Section 5 Troubleshooting. Section 6 LUN support Section 7 PCI Hot Plug Section 1 NetWare files on this disk ------------------------------------- The following files are on this diskette for supporting NetWare 4.X: \NETWARE\QL12160.DDI Installation information file \NETWARE\QL12160.HAM NetWare 4.X/5.X HAM driver for supporting the QLogic SCSI PCI QLA12160 host adapters \NETWARE\README.TXT This file \NETWARE\QLNWCDRM.SYS DOS based CD-ROM device driver Section 2 Installation of NetWare onto a SCSI disk -------------------------------------------------- To initially install NetWare on a SCSI disk attached to the QLogic SCSI adapter or to install NetWare from a CD-ROM player attached to the SCSI adapter: 1. If you haven't already done so, install DOS on your boot disk. 2. Copy the QLogic CD-ROM driver to your hard drive: C: MD \QLC COPY A:\NETWARE\QLNWCDRM.SYS C:\QLC 3. Add the following line to your CONFIG.SYS file: DEVICE=C:\QLC\QLNWCDRM.SYS /D:QLC0000 4. Add the following line to your AUTOEXEC.BAT file: C:\DOS\MSCDEX.EXE /D:QLC0000 /M:10 5. Remove he diskette from drive A: and reboot your system to load the CDROM driver. 6. Follow the standard NetWare instructions to begin the installation. 7. When prompted to "Choose the Server Drivers - Disk Driver", press <Insert> to install an unlisted driver. 8. Insert the QLogic Software Drivers diskette. 9. Press <Enter> to select the QLogic HAM driver. 10. Continue with the standard NetWare installation procedure. Section 3 Adding a QLogic Adapter to an existing system -------------------------------------------------------- To install the QLogic SCSI QL12160.HAM driver on previously installed NetWare system perform the following steps: 1. From the NetWare server prompt, load the NetWare Install program: LOAD INSTALL 2. Select "Driver options" from the main menu. 3. Select "Configure disk and storage device drivers". 4. Select "Select an additional driver". 5. Press <Insert> to install an unlisted driver. 6. Insert the QLogic Software Drivers diskette. 7. Press <Enter> to select the QLogic HAM driver and select "Yes" to copy the driver from the diskette to the server directory. Section 4 Novell NetWare support of QL12160.HAM driver ------------------------------------------------------ The following drivers are provided with Novell NetWare for supporting various SCSI devices through the SCSI HAM driver: SCSIHD.CDM NetWare CDM driver for supporting SCSI hard disk devices. SCSICD.CDM NetWare CDM driver for supporting SCSI CD-ROM devices. SCSIMO.CDM NetWare CDM driver for supporting SCSI magneto optical storage devices. SCSI2TP.CDM NetWare CDM driver for supporting SCSI tape devices (SBACKUP requires this driver). NWASPI.CDM NetWare CDM driver for supporting SCSI devices through the ASPI interface (see note below). CDROM.NLM NetWare CD-ROM driver for supporting CD-ROM devices. After the HAM driver is loaded, the CDM drivers will be loaded automatically by NetWare as needed. NOTE: Contact Novell for any missing CDM drivers that you need (the NWASPI.CDM driver is missing on the NetWare 4.1 release). Section 5 Troubleshooting -------------------------- To support multiple adapters, add one LOAD command per adapter to your STARTUP.NCF file: LOAD QL12160.HAM SLOT=xxxx. The "SLOT=xxxx" command line parameter is provided for specifying which adapter to configure for each load instance. If the driver is loaded manually from the server prompt and there are multiple adapters, the user will be required to pick a slot number from a list. The QLogic SCSI QL12160.HAM driver reads the onboard NVRAM and supports all of the customized configuration parameters for the adapter and the attached SCSI devices. Use the <ALT> + <Q> key combination during BIOS boot to access the adapter's configuration options. If you experience a sudden server hang shortly after the HAM driver has loaded, exit to DOS and examine your CONFIG.SYS and AUTOEXEC.BAT files for possible driver conflicts. Some DOS drivers that have been known to casue conflicts in NetWare are: - EMM386.EXE - SMARTDRIVE - QLxxASPI.SYS and QL00CDRM.SYS, replace this combination with QLNWCDRM.SYS Section 6 LUN support --------------------- If you are using multiple LUN devices, the HAM driver will only see LUN 0 by default. To support all LUNs, load the HAM with the /LUNS option either on the command line or in the STARTUP.NCF file. Example: LOAD QL12160.HAM /LUNS You may also tell the driver to support multiple LUNs after the driver has been loaded by using the following command at the server console: SCAN ALL IMPORTANT NOTE: To prevent long delays when loading the driver with the /LUNS switch or typing 'scan all' at the console prompt, disable lun support for all SCSI IDs which require only lun 0 support. This is done by using adapter's built in Fast!UTIL BIOS utility. Use the <ALT> + <Q> key combination during BIOS boot to access Fast!UTIL. Once in Fast!UTIL, go to 'Configuration Settings' then 'SCSI Device Settings' then select either SCSI bus 0 or 1, go to the 'Enable LUNS' parameter and set this value to 'NO' for devices which require only lun 0 support. Set 'Enable LUNS' to YES for any device requiring support for luns 1 - 31. Section 7 PCI Hot Plug ----------------------- NOTE: This procedure addresses only the driver-related portion of the PCI Hot Swap operation. The server must have PCI slots that are capable of being powered up and down independently. Depending on the server platform, this entire operation may be controlled by a platform specific software module supplied by the platform vendor. In such a case, these commands are issued directly to the driver and do not require the operator to enter them. PCI Hot Plug works by unloading a specific instance of the driver associated with a specific host adapter. It allows a failed adapter to be removed and replaced by an adapter of the same type without disrupting the operation of other adapters of the same type. The steps necessary to perform a hot swap operation are listed below. 1. Type "LIST STORAGE ADAPTERS" at the server console. You will see a list similar to this example: [V595-A0] Adapter 0 [V595-A0-D0:0] SCSI HARD DISK [V595-A0-D1:0] SCSI HARD DISK [V595-A1] Adapter 1 [V595-A1-D3:0] SCSI HARD DISK [V595-A1-D4:0] SCSI HARD DISK 2. If it were desired to remove host adapter instance 0 controlling the first two hard drives, the operator would enter the following command: REMOVE STORAGE ADAPTER A0 3. After the host adapter has been replaced, the operator would make the new adapter operational by loading another instance of the driver using the normal load command syntax. For example: LOAD QL12160.HAM SLOT=3Download Driver Pack
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.
