VRTX Shared PERC 8 and Multipath I/O

Hi,

I just acquired a VRTX and I am configuring it for Hyper-V as per Dell deployment guide

I am stuck after enabling multipath I/O as DELL SHARED PERC8 is not listed under the Discover multi-paths.

I have modified the registry as per the deployment guide. Please help, I'm behind my schedule on delivery time.

Re: VRTX Shared PERC 8 and Multipath I/O

Mistamayor,

 

It sounds like the Shared Perc 8 Driver hasn't been loaded. If you look on page 26 on the deployment guide you linked, it is the step you do before configuring the multipathing. 

Let me know if you have loaded the driver.

Re: VRTX Shared PERC 8 and Multipath I/O

@DELL-Chris H thanks for your feedback.

I am running Server 2016 

 

I did not find drivers for PERC 8  at Dell.com/drivers just firmware for Server 2016

However, Shared PERC 8 shows up in deivce manger and the installed for the PERC8 has driver version 6.805.3.0 while driver date is 3/15/2016

I would be glad if you could help.

Downloading one of the drivers for Server 2012R2 showed that the currently installed driver is newer than the update i was trying to install.
