Installing the Driver in an Existing NetWare v4.xx Installation

To update or install the AIC7870.DSK or AIC78U2.HAM driver when NetWare v4.xx is already installed, follow the instructions in this section.  The procedures are similar for all versions of NetWare. Procedures that are specific to a NetWare version are noted when necessary.

1. Make a backup copy of the old driver (if it exists) before installing the new driver.

2. Copy the AIC7870.DSK or AIC78U2.HAM driver from the 7800 Family Manager Set v3.02.2 diskette for NetWare into the server's startup directory (e.g. c:\nwserver, c:\server.40, etc.) on your hard disk. This overwrites any existing version of the driver in the directory.

NOTE: For NetWare v4.xx, the driver file is located in the \netware\v4_xx directory on the diskette.

3. If necessary, modify the load command line in the STARTUP.NCF so that the proper path to the driver and all appropriate command line options are specified. (See the "Loading the Driver at Server Bootup and Command Line Options sections, below.)

The correct syntax to load the 7800 Family Manager driver is:

load [pathname]aic7870 [options]
or
load [pathname]aic78u2 [options]

Command line options are not case sensitive. Placing commas between command line options is optional. See "Command Line Options", below, for possible values.
 

Loading the Driver at Server Bootup

To automatically load the AIC7870.DSK or AIC78U2.HAM at server bootup, the STARTUP.NCF file (usually located in your server's startup directory) must contain a load command line that specifies the location of the driver and any appropriate command line options (see Command Line Options, below). For additional information on the STARTUP.NCF file, refer to your NetWare documentation.

NOTE: To load the driver from your hard disk, the AIC7870.DSK driver and ASPITRAN.DSK module must be copied from the Adaptec 7800 Family Manager Set v3.02.2 diskette for NetWare to a directory on your hard disk [usually the server's startup directory (e.g., c:\nwserver)].

The correct syntax to load the driver is:

load [pathname]aic7870 [options]
or
load [pathname]aic78u2 [options]

For example, the command line to load the driver from the c:\nwserver directory, with the "verbose=" option on is:

load c:\nwserver\aic7870 verbose=y
or
load c:\nwserver\aic78u2 verbose=y

Command line options are not case sensitive. Placing commas between command line options is optional. See Command Line Options, below,  for possible values.

To modify the STARTUP.NCF file, follow these steps:

NOTE: You can also use your DOS text editor to modify the STARTUP.NCF file.

1. Type load install at the NetWare prompt and press ENTER.

2. Select the appropriate menu choice that allows you to edit the STARTUP.NCF file.

3. Make the necessary changes. When you are done, press ESC.
 

Known Issues

  • There is a known problem which occurs during the installation of Netware 4.0x, that involves the DDI file used during the initialization of the host adapter device driver. The DDI file does not contain all the possible slot number options available on all PCI systems, as there are too many combinations. As a result, during the installation procedure, NetWare will report that it is unable to load the driver in the given amount of time.  This is because the DDI file does not contain any slot options, which causes NetWare not to load the driver. Note, however, that this is not an error. The user simply needs to go to the console screen and manually enter in the correct slot number and installation will continue.

  • A second known problem exists that will hang the server after loading the host adapter device driver. This problem involves targets that do not support scanning of multiple luns, with the command line option lun_enable.  The user simply needs to set the command line option multlun_targets to only scan targets that support multiple luns.  This problem is known to occur with Quantum Empire 540S drives.

  • Novell recommends not using IRQ 15 for host adapters.  If your system bios allows the assignment of IRQs, change your adapters IRQ to a value other than 15.

  • On NetWare 4.11, without media in the CD-ROM drive, and using built in driver support for CD-ROMs, the message "No CD-ROM Devices Registered with NetWare." is reported, if "cd device list" is issued.

  • There is a known problem with some hard drives that are less than or equal to 1 GB. If these drives were previously formatted using the Adaptec 7800 Family Manager Set v2.1x driver for Netware, and are now being upgraded to the 7800 Family Manager Set v3.02.2 driver, the user may have problems in finding the device during initialization. If this occurs, use the following command line option in your STARTUP.NCF file:  ext_tran=n

  • On some system configurations and during a first time installation or when upgrading to the 7800 Family Manager Set v3.02.2 driver, the user may see a window with the following warning message:

    • "One or more partitions on drive 0 are inconsistent with the driver geometries (xxx heads, xx sectors, and xxx cylinders) that NetWare is using. You may continue and edit the partition anyway, although this inconsistency could create problems later on."

  • This message is shown when the "Installation Options" window appears, and the user highlights and selects "Disk Options", followed by "Modify Disk Partitions and Hot Fix". The user should simply continue to the "Disk Partitions Options" window to edit the partition, and installation will complete successfully.

  • The AIC78U2.HAM driver will not load if older versions of the NWPA.NLM file have been used. To fix this problem, use the updated version of the NWPA.NLM file that is included in this diskette.

  • The AIC78U2.HAM driver requires a minimum of 16 MB of memory.

  • When starting a NetWare server with two Ultra2 host adapters, the error message "Unbound Device Object" might appear.  Manually unloading and reloading the driver will fix the problem, as well as removing the "slot=xx" option in the STARTUP.NCF file (and then selecting the default slot number(s)).  This is being addressed by Novell.

  • When loading server.exe with the ""load aic78u2.ham slot=# lun_enable"" switch, the server locks up while scanning the LUNs.  This is being addressed by Novell.

  • On some SMP systems, if the IRQ setting is set to "Auto" in the system's BIOS then NW 4.11 installation will hang at loading a NIC driver.  This problem was tested with a Tyan P5 SMP, and it did show up.  The problem did not show up on the DEC SMP system.  This is being addressed by Novell.

  • Certain systems will not run Sbackup under NetWare v3.12.  NetWare v4.11 runs it with no problems.  This is an issue which is currently being addressed by Novell.

  • Some systems experienced problems loading NetWare when loading the AIC7870.DSK and ASPICD.DSK drivers after the AIC78U2.HAM driver.  The workaround is to load the DSK drivers before the HAM driver.


Additional Notes
  • All of Adaptec's NetWare drivers have full support for standard SCSI disk drives, "NetWare Ready" drives, and removable media disk drives (including optical drives).

  • For NetWare patches and other latest information, reference the Novell website at http://developer.novell.com/

  • The AIC7870.DSK driver also contains a built-in ASPI manager.  This allows for other NetWare Loadable Modules (NLMs) to gain access to the host adapter. Given the flexibility of ASPI, several companies are currently providing server-based tape backup solutions through ASPI.  SBackup is a server based tape backup solution which is shipped by Novell with NetWare.  SBackup supports the ASPI interface.  There are other ASPI modules already developed or under development.  A programming specification is available from Adaptec if you are interested in writing your own NetWare 386 ASPI module.

  • The AIC78U2.HAM driver also supports applications that use the ASPI interface to access devices on a NetWare Server, through NWASPI.CDM.  This CDM is not included with the current release, but can be downloaded from http://developer.novell.com/engsup/sample/areas/smsi.htm.

  • If your file server does a lot of IO operations and you want to try optimizing its performance, you can adjust the "max_tags=?" command line switch.  This switch controls the maximum number of tagged commands outstanding at a given device.  Refer to your disk-drive's documentation to determine if tagged-queuing is supported, and the maximum number of outstanding commands supported. Its default value is 16.

The following are examples of how to change this feature:
For all 7800 Manager Set host adapters:  :load aic7870 max_tags=2
For UltraSCSI or earlier only host adapters:  :load aic7870 tag_disable=ffff
The first example shows how to use the max_tags command line option.  The max_tags parameter can be set between 1 and 128.  Larger values give the drives more opportunity for optimization, but take up more memory in the server.
  • For several reasons, you may want to use a lower value of max_tags.  For some drives, maximum performance is achieved with a max_tags less than the maximum supported by the drive.  Also, some drives may not support the driver's maximum count of 128, or may suffer starvation problems with large counts, leading to drive deactivation.  The latter issue applies only to the AIC7870.DSK driver. It turns off tagged-queuing for all devices. This may be necessary for starvation-prone drives.

  • The Adaptec 7800 Family Manager Set v3.02.2 NetWare driver no longer supports the slot=0 command line option. For the AIC7870.DSK driver, if no slot is mentioned on the command line, the driver is loaded for all host adapters present in the system. For the Ultra2SCSI AIC78U2.HAM driver, if no slot is mentioned on the command line, the driver prompts you for a valid slot number.
