Windows 2003 Palo (VIC) Drivers

Anyone know if there is a Windows 2003 VIC driver? I fond the Windows 2008 x64 one on the UCS Downloads page.

Windows 2003 is not a supported OS for the VIC card and hence the drivers are not available.

The OS support is given at http://www.cisco.com/en/US/prod/collateral/ps10265/ps10280/data_sheet_c78-525049.html

Manish, thank you. I have looked at that link several times and never noticed the supported OS section. I also found the very helpful PDF last night.

Re: Windows 2003 Palo (VIC) Drivers

While the official answer may be that it is not supported, I have to say that it is a BAD answer.  Our local Cisco SE said it was due to Microsoft discontinuing new certifications for 2003.  So what?  W2K3 is a huge part of my environment.  While not having the drivers won't stop our implementation of UCS, it is causing us to think about not moving some systems to UCS.  We do a lot of W2K3 clustering so having Palo drivers would be very beneficial.  Now, we may have to lose some redundancy so we can keep our heartbeat and servers traffic separate.

A good answer to the original question would be, "There are currently no Palo drivers for W2K3, but we are working on them."

Hey Jeremy, could you mark this question as answered - it helps me (and others) avoid opening this thread if we can see it's been answered.  Be good to throw Manish some points too!
