.........................................................................
1.0 Introduction for Windows Server 2008  


Windows Server 2008 is an operating system designed to run on Intel
architecture (x86, 32-bit), Itanium Processor Family (IA64), and Extended-64
(x64, AMD64/EM64T) processors using current technology. It provides a graphical
user interface environment incorporating many high-level features. Refer to the
Microsoft Windows Server 2008 documentation for details.

An I/O manager handles I/O requests in Windows Server 2008. To address a
peripheral, the I/O manager goes through the appropriate drivers. Windows
Server 2008 provides class drivers for hard disk, optical, CD-ROM, printer,
and scanner peripherals. Other class drivers, provided by peripheral
manufacturers, may be added to support new devices. Tape device support is
built into the operating system itself and does not require a class driver. 

Microsoft provides the port driver and LSI Corporation provides the miniport
driver, which is called LSI_SAS2.SYS.  This driver completes the path to the
LSI controller or processor with an optional SAS BIOS.

This miniport driver uses the Microsoft StorPort port driver (rather than
the Microsoft ScsiPort driver in earlier versions of Windows).  The StorPort
driver has architectural enhancements that provide performance improvements on
large server systems with many storage adapters.  This miniport driver is
designed to take advantage of these enhancements for improved performance.

1.1 Features 

The LSI_SAS2.SYS miniport driver supports these features:

o  Supports End-to-End Data Protection (EEDP)
o  Supports 1.5Gb, 3Gb, and 6Gb SAS expanders/devices and SATA devices
o  Supports PCI-Express bus protocols
o  Supports MSI/MSI-X

o  Auto request sense 
o  Maximum block size support: 1 Mbyte (32-bit), 2 Mbyte (64-bit)

1.3 Description

The LSI_SAS2.SYS driver meets the Microsoft specification for miniport
drivers.  This driver allows connection of SAS devices including disk drives,
CD/DVD-ROMs, and tape drives for PCI-Express based machines. To support a
different SAS device type, the Windows Server 2008 architecture requires that
a class driver for that type of device be present (usually supplied by
Microsoft, or possibly by the peripheral manufacturer). No changes to the LSI
driver is required. The driver supports only Windows Server 2008 and all
subsequent Service Packs.
