Upgrade Requirement:
Recommended - HP recommends users update to this version at their earliest convenience.

Use this driver component if you are updating from a previous version as it contains a correction for a reported false driver installation failure.  There is no change to the driver binary.  This is a kit installer change only.


The current Emulex Windows driver install kit blindly interprets any non-zero return value from the APinstall as a
failure. This would indicate a false failure when the error code was 3010 (Success but needs reboot). The installer
code has been revised to return an exit code of Success for this condition.

Fixes

Upgrade Requirement:
Recommended - HP recommends users update to this version at their earliest convenience.

Use this driver component if you are updating from a previous version as it contains a correction for a reported false driver installation failure.  There is no change to the driver binary.  This is a kit installer change only.


The current Emulex Windows driver install kit blindly interprets any non-zero return value from the APinstall as a
failure. This would indicate a false failure when the error code was 3010 (Success but needs reboot). The installer
code has been revised to return an exit code of Success for this condition.
