StorageWorks Controllers

Compaq/Digital supply a range of relabelled Mylex controllers in the StorageWorks family. These controllers are supported as boot devices in systems where the SRM is capable of booting from the device. The Compaq/Digital-supplied configuration utilities should be used to configure the controller and attached arrays.

At this time the KZPSC and PZPAC controller families are known to work. Other controllers are expected to function, but have not been tested.

Non-Alpha Firmware Controllers

Other supported controllers can be used in Alpha systems, however there are no facilities currently available for configuring the controller or attached arrays. Thus, the controller must be moved to an Intel-based system for configuration. These controllers are typically not bootable as SRM does not provide support.
