Info on Windows 2012 RAID Drivers / RWC ?

Is there an ETA on RAID Drivers and support for the RWC console for Windows 2012? It's been in RC for almost a year now, and there are zero HW RAID drivers out for 2012, as well as support for RWC, even though I think you can still run the RWC on most 2012 setups_raid

Aaron,

Apologies, we will be getting a Server 2012 driver package posted this week, or early next week. There is an embedded driver in Server 2012 you can use for the time being.

We've posted a new RWC2 (version 12.08.03.02) today. You should see it live tomorrow sometime.

Regards,

John

Is there any reason it takes Intel so long to post these driver updates compared to LSI? They've had Server 2012 drivers available for the 9265 since October. Using VMware, you just end up using their drivers anyways, but the latest SMIS VIB took a couple weeks to get posted here. The VMware 5.x raid driver on the site isn't even remotely current. It honestly feels like I'm being punished for buying the Intel version.

Again, our apologies for the delay. The updated http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=22417 Server 2012 driver has been posted today and should be available for download later today or early tomorrow.

Note: This is the WHQL signed SAS HW RAID driver for Windows, but Windows* Server 2003 is not supprted with this driver package.

Regards,

John
