Drive Ordering in Disk Manager is not consistent. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have a new SCSI Controller/HBA and developed the windows Storport Miniport driver, when the driver is installed and drives are connected behind our controller the drives ordering displayed by the Disk-Manager is not consistent at all.

    Also if we try to do bootable installation on our controller the drives displayed during installation is not consistent as to what we are giving it to Storport. First few commands from Storport are being sent in sequence, but later the ReadCapacity sequence is changing the behavior.

    It would be great if we can get some suggestion on how Storport is sorting or expecting the Miniport drivers to report?

  • Sorting is never guaranteed, this is the defined behavior
