Issue Details

I just purchased a NI RAID array and need to install the drivers on my PXI controller. However, the included driver CD does not have the drivers that I need. Where can I find drivers for NI RAID arrays?

Solution

  • The driver for the NI 8260 (up to 3 TB across 4 drives, in-chassis) can be found on the National Instruments' drivers page, located here.
  • The NI HDD-8261 (up to 4TB across 4 drives, in-chassis) can be found on the National Instruments' drivers page, located here.
  • The NI HDD-8263 (1 or 2 Terabyte across 4 drives) uses the HighPoint Technologies RocketRAID 2310 controller. Click here to access the HighPoint's drivers website and click on RocketRAID 2310 under RocketRAID 2300 Series to access the download page.
  • The NI HDD-8264 (3 Terabyte across 12 drives) uses the LSI 84016E controller which is now owned by Avago. Click here to access the download page or search for 84016E on the Avago homepage. Alternatively, from the Avago homepage, go to Support»Support Downloads and Downloads»MegaRAID SAS 84016E.
  • The NI HDD-8265 (6, 12, or 24 Terabyte across 12 drives) uses the Areca Management Software. This should ship with the 8265 driver DVD, but can also be accessed here.
  • The NI HDD-8266 (up to 24 TB across 24 drives) uses the Adaptec RAID 72405.  Click here to access the drivers associated with the NI HDD-8266.
