  1.  Adaptec Firmware Update
  2.  SCST Installation

  • ​Adaptec makes a bootable image available for the firmware update: Adaptec Storage Manager Downloads​
  • You can boot off of this image (it did not work over the WAN) 
  • You need a copy of the firmware file on a seperate USB drive Firmware​. The drive needs to be mounted before you boot off of the above image
​2. ​​SCST Installation

  • Download SCST via: svn checkout svn:// scst-svn
  • Newer kernels include a srpt driver that does not work properly. It needs to be deleted from: /lib/modules/3.11.0-14-generic/kernel/drivers/infiniband/ulp/srpt (sub correct kernel)
  • Make SCST via: make scst scst_install srpt srpt_install scstadm scstadm_install
  • Copy new srpt driver:  cp /usr/src/scst-svn/srpt/src/ib_srpt.ko /lib/modules/3.11.0-14-generic/kernel/drivers/infiniband/ulp/srpt/ib_srpt.ko​
  • Add: scst_vdisk and ib_srpt to /etc/init.d/scst
