1. Introduction OneInstall Installer

A single download package, OneInstall Installer (OneInstall), contains all of the Emulex ® Windows drivers (Emulex Storport Miniport and Network Driver Interface Specification [NDIS] Miniport drivers) and the OneCommand Installer.

® Manager (OCM) application. OneInstall is available for download from the Emulex website. The limitation of the single package is that you cannot perform pre-installation tasks, unattended installations, or text-only installations. For these tasks, use the AutoPilot

For instructions on loading the OneInstall Package, see “Loading OneInstall” on page 7.

To learn more about the OCM application, refer to the user manual available on the Emulex website.

AutoPilot Installer

For installing individual drivers and specific utilities, AutoPilot Installer download from the Emulex website. ® provides installation options that include simple installations, unattended installations that use predefined script files, and text-only installations. Emulex drivers and utilities include AutoPilot Installer in the Windows executable files (kit installers) that you can This driver package contains x86 and x64 drivers and installs the correct files based on the adapters in your system.

    Fibre Channel (FC) driver package (elxdrvr-fc-.exe) Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) driver package (elxdrvr-fcoe-.exe) Internet Small Computer System Interface (iSCSI) driver package (elxdrvr-iscsi-.exe) Ethernet or Network Interface Card (NIC) driver package (elxdrvr-nic-.exe)

Note: Note:

Updating the NIC protocol driver may temporarily disrupt operation of any NIC teams configured on the system.

AutoPilot Installer is not supported for Windows PE. Consult the Windows Automated Installation Kit (WAIK) documentation on including drivers with your Windows PE images.

You can install the driver by any of the following methods:

Note:

These installation methods are not mutually exclusive.

     

Hardware-first installation

. At least one Emulex adapter must be installed before you can install the Emulex drivers and utilities.

Software-first installation

. You can install drivers and utilities using AutoPilot Installer prior to the installation of any adapters. You do not need to specify the adapter models to be installed later. The appropriate drivers and utilities automatically load when you install the adapters.

Utility Only installation

. If the drivers in the driver kit share the same version with those already installed on the system, you can reinstall or update the previously installed utility without reinstalling the drivers.

Text-Only installation

.

Text-based installation mode is used automatically when AutoPilot Installer is run on a Server Core system.

Network installation.

You can place the driver kit installers on a shared network drive and install them across your local area network (LAN). Network-based installation is often used in conjunction with unattended installation and scripting. This allows you to configure and install the same driver and utility versions on all the hosts in a storage area network (SAN).

Unattended installation

status.

. You can run the driver kit installers and AutoPilot Installer with no user interaction from a command line or script. Unattended installation works for both hardware-first and software-first installations and all driver kits. An unattended installation operates in silent mode (sometimes referred to as quiet mode) and creates an extensive report file with installation

Note:

Complete driver and utilities documentation may be downloaded from the Emulex website (www.emulex.com). Click

Downloads

at the top of the web page and navigate by clicking the appropriate links.

Operating System Requirements

One of the following operating systems must be installed on an x 86 or x64 server with a minimum of 512 megabytes (MB) of memory:     Windows Server 2008: x86 or x64 versions, Enterprise and Server Core installation Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows Server 2012: x64 versions, Enterprise and Server Core installation Windows 7 Ultimate, Enterprise, or Professional edition (x64 only; supported on only OneConnect™ OCe1110x Universal Converged Network Adapters [UCNAs]) Windows Pre-installation Environment (PE) 2.x, 3.x, or 4.x.

Note:

AutoPilot Installer is not supported for Windows PE. See the Windows Automated Installation Kit (WAIK) documentation on including drivers with your Windows PE images.

Note:

Check the Emulex website for required updates to the Windows operating system or the Emulex drivers.

Compatibility

For a complete list of adapters that are compatible with these drivers, see the driver's Downloads page on the Emulex website. For compatible firmware versions, see the Downloads page for the specific adapter.

Changing Driver Types

If you currently use a SCSIport Miniport or FC Port driver, the driver is replaced when you install the Emulex Storport Miniport FC driver. The Emulex Storport Miniport FC driver is installed for all adapters on the server. You also lose your customized driver parameters, persistent bindings, LUN masking and LUN mapping. The default parameters set with AutoPilot Installer are usually the best options. However, you may want to note your current settings before you install the Emulex Storport Miniport driver. After the installation, you can then update your customized driver parameters.

Note:

This update process can leave files associated with old driver kits on your system. After running AutoPilot Installer and restarting your system, you may be required to uninstall old driver or utility program entries. Follow the procedures in the "Uninstalling Programs" section in the Emulex Driver for Windows User Manual. Ensure you delete only previous driver and utility versions.

ElxPlus driver – Supports the OneCommand Manager application, persistent binding and LUN mapping and masking.

If you are creating Windows PE disk images or performing boot from SAN installation, you must select the

Unpack All Drivers

option instead of running AutoPilot Installer. See step 2 of Installing the Driver Kit in the following procedure.

After the driver kit is installed, you have two options:   Automatically run AutoPilot Installer immediately. This is the default option.

See Option 1 on page 10 for more information.

Explicitly run AutoPilot Installer later on your system. See Option 2 on page 10

for more information.

Installing the Driver Kit

To install the driver kit: 1. Do one of the following:  Download and install the OneInstall package from the Emulex website to your system. The driver kit installer is downloaded at part of this single package.

 Download the driver kit installer from the Emulex website to your system.

Note:

The name of the driver kit installer depends on the current version identifier. 2. If you plan to create Windows PE disk images or perform boot from SAN installations, unpack all drivers. On the driver kit installer Welcome page, select the

Unpack all drivers

check box. Checking this check box unpacks all the drivers into the ‘My Documents’ directory.

3. Choose one of three options:   

For an automatic interactive installation, see “Option 1: Automatically Run AutoPilot Installer” on page 10.

For control of all interactive installation settings, see “Option 2: Run AutoPilot Installer Separately” on page 10.

Text-Only Installation Overview

Text-based installation mode is used automatically when AutoPilot Installer runs on a server with the Server Core installation option of Windows Server. During text-based installations, AutoPilot Installer interacts through a command prompt window. AutoPilot Installer notifies you when the driver is installed and also gives you a chance to abort the installation.

Whether AutoPilot Installer is launched from the command line or started programmatically, Windows always starts AutoPilot Installer as a separate stand-alone task. This means that AutoPilot Installer has its own command prompt window and cannot access others.
