PERC 6/i Integrated driver for Windows Server 2008, SP2 x86

Jump to solution

Hello,

I have OpenManage Server Administrator 6.5 installed on a PowerEdge 2900 running Windows Server 2008 SP2, 32-bit. I have a warning that the driver is out of date, but the most recent I see on the download site is 2.23.00.32 (http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/04/DriverDetails/Product/poweredge-2900?driverId=WPDRV&osCode=WLHS1&fileId=2731105660).

I recently configured OpenManage Essentials 1.1 to monitor our servers. It has an update for the driver to 2.24.0.32. On the Dell driver site, there is a download for 2.24.0.32, but it says it is for Windows Server 2003.

Is there a 2.24.0.32 driver for Windows Server 2008, 32-bit? I'm worried about applying the update through OpenManage Essentials when I can't find the appropriate driver on the Dell Driver site.

I'm not sure why the latest is shown as 2.23 ... the latest is indeed 2.24.  Dell's Support Site suffered a major catastrophe some months back and they are still struggling to get it back in order ... I suspect this is one of those things.

Here is the "Update Package for Microsoft Windows" version of the file:

Here is the "Hard Drive" version of the file (for OS installs):
http://ftp.dell.com/SAS-RAID/DELL_MULTI-DEVICE_A03_R210509.exe

Here is a link to the readme to ease your mind about the update itself:
