Windows device driver information for Adaptec SCSI RAID 2120S Controller

Designed for high volume data traffic computing network environments this particular hardware component is intended to deliver protection for data exchanges to minimize data loss as well as prevent computer server down time. The instances of computing down time can negatively impact the performance of a number of organizations which can eventually lead to operational losses. The deployment of the Adaptec SCSI RAID 2120S Controller and its associated device driver allows for a low profile and high density server solution that is based on a 64-bit data bandwidth supported by a 66 MHz PCI standard. The usage of this hardware component is normally seen in entry level servers and workstations that are commonly used in small to medium sized enterprises. The functionality of this hardware component as supported by its device driver allows for the effective deployment of up to 15 storage devices under a single controller unit.

Outdated Drivers?

Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.

To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates

The 64 MB of onboard memory can capably support the implementation of RAID technology in its various levels. The device driver of the Adaptec SCSI RAID 2120S Controller also supports the execution of optimized disk utilization with a corresponding RAID level migration in case the computer user needs to reconfigure the storage structure. The online capacity expansion support extended by the device driver allows the computer user to implement additional storage devices without necessarily bringing the network server to offline status. The immediate availability of RAID technology as implemented by the Adaptec SCSI RAID 2120S Controller and its corresponding device driver is supported by the background initialization process. This leads to a faster deployment of the RAID technology in the computing network environment while extending support for SAF-TE and S.M.A.R.T. technologies. The hot-swap functionality supported by the device driver allows for the easy replacement of failed storage devices. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for Windows and Adaptec SCSI RAID 2120S Controller errors before installing any driver updates.

Windows 2000

The following sections describe procedures for installing
Adaptec SCSI RAID controllers under Windows 2000. Three installation scenarios
are described:

  • Upgrading Windows NT to Windows 2000

4.)Insert the Windows 2000
CD and run the setup.exe program on the CD. Setup will copy some files
then reboot the system.

5. )When the system is restarting,
a blue screen will appear after the hardware detection message. When prompted
to install a third party driver, press F6.

6.)When prompted, insert
the I
2O driver disk into the
floppy disk drive and select Adaptec I2O RAID Host Adapter Driver for
Windows 2000
. Press Enter and follow the instructions displayed.

Installing on a New System

Note: You only have a brief opportunity (five seconds)
to press F6 during the install startup. A prompt will appear at
the bottom of the screen when the F6 key is active. If you do not
