1. This release is to resolve defects 3234763 and 3235920. For more details refer to the following documents: IBP #487724 “Intel Rapid Storage Technology: RAID 5 Volume Data Loss Exposure” and IBP #487730 “Intel Rapid Storage Technology: 4TB Disk Data Loss Exposure”.
Note: To resolve 3234763 the RAID OROM must be updated to version 10.8.0.1303 which is contained in the RAID OROM and Utilities directory of this kit. After updating the RAID OROM, boot the system to Windows and run the VerifyMaker.exe utility which is also located in the RAID OROM and Utilities directory. Contact your Intel field representative for further details and assistance.
2. For this release, the RAID OROM version is 10.8.0.1303, the driver and user interface version is 10.8.0.1003.
3. Known Issue is defined as a potential RST issue that has been replicated internally by the Rapid Storage Technology team but has not been root caused to be an RST defect.
4. Specification Clarification: This is a clarification of a previously undocumented limitation of the Intel RST product for Rapid Recover Technology volumes. When creating an RRT Volume at least one member disk (master or recovery) must include 100% of the available capacity of the disk and the disk capacity must be less than or equal to 1.3125 TB.
5. When an ODD is in the Zero Power state, some ODDs may disappear when a hardware re-scan is initiated via the Windows Device Manager. A second hardware re-scan conducted before the Zero Power Idle Timeout value is reached (default is 60s) will return the drive to an OS visible state. This behavior is believed to be related to the length of time an ODD requires to become ready during power on from the zero-power state.
6. Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 is required to be installed on the system in order for the Intel Rapid Storage Technology User Interface to install. Note that not all Microsoft Operating Systems have .NET 3.0 installed by default. Refer to the Microsoft website for details.
7. A Vista OS Installation using a Matrix RAID Array on a system with a 9.5 or newer OROM requires the user to F6 a 9.5 or newer driver.
8. Possible issue where RST is slow to start on Windows XP or Vista with .NET 3.0
Issue description: Under certain network conditions, on systems with .NET 3.0, the RST application and notification icon (a.k.a. tray icon) may take about a minute to start.
Resolution: Contact Microsoft to receive the hot fix described by KB article 936707 or upgrade to .NET 3.5.
9. Possible Issue regarding File writes on Windows XP with Service Pack 2
Issue description: System hangs, ERROR_NO_SYSTEM_RESOURCES or ERROR_NOT_ENOUGH_QUOTA observed when writing large numbers of files on Windows XP with Service Pack 2.
Resolution: Contact Microsoft to receive the hot fix described by KB article 888413.
