Update HDD Drivers

Running NetWare 6.0.3

We have a couple of Compaq DL320 that were initially installed with NW 6.0.3. The problem I ran into during the initial installation was the MEGAIDE.HAM driver would not allow the hard drives to mount. I had to basically use an older version of MEGAIDE.HAM (NW 5.1 version I think) when the servers were installed. Now that NW 6 SP5 is available, I'd like to give the new HDD drivers a shot. It seems there is no MEGAIDE.HAM anymore, only MEGARIDE.HAM. Is this the replacement? Also are the only files that are needed to mount the drive listed in the STARTUP.NCF? I need to know what needs to be backed up in case I need to roll back the drivers. Just trying to cover my bases before I implement this service pack.

Thanks.

Update HDD Drivers

Hello. I have NW 6.5.4a running on a HP DL320 G2 with RAID 1 ide
drives. I am having problems with NSS.NLM pegged at 100% every 2 or 3
days and I have to reboot it.

Anyway, I ran across your post. In my startup.ncf, I have the following:

LOAD ACPIDRV.PSM
######## End PSM Drivers ########
LOAD IDEHD.CDM
LOAD IDECD.CDM
######## End CDM Drivers ########
LOAD MEGARIDE.HAM SLOT=10003
LOAD IDEATA.HAM SLOT=10009
######## End HAM Drivers ########

Good luck, hope this helps some.

Michael
