Version:106.190.4.1062 (21 Dec 2020)
Fixes

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


This release provides the following fixes: 

  • Fixed an issue where the early completion of the SRB_FUNCTION_SHUTDOWN SRB is in dump mode 

  • The driver was not setting the feature bit to inform the controller to return a unique WWN ID per SATA drive via Inquiry VPD 0x83 rather then returning WWN ID per SAT drive port. 

  • While executing HCK CHAOS test, SmartPQI driver crashes with bugcheck 0x7A (KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR). 

  • While rebooting, the SmartPQI driver crashes with bugcheck 0xD1 

  • An issue where Sleep test causes the SmartPQI driver to trigger a bugcheck 0xD1. 

  • Fixed an issue while executing driver disable/reinstall, the SmartPQI driver crashes with bugcheck 0xD1 

  • Fixed an issue where the application hangs due to lost command. When issuing "Get-Disk" from Powershell, the command would eventually hang indefinitely. 

  • Fixed the registry lookup for determining where I/O is completed was using the string " SubmitViaStartIo " instead of " CompleteIoInDpc ". 

  • Fixed an issue where while executing sleep, the windows SmartPQI driver crashes with bugcheck 0x7E. 

  • Fixed an issue where the system would BSOD when doing unnecessary initialization of the multi-tag table after declaring controller lockup. 

  • Fixed an issue that causes a DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE BSOD 

  • Fixed an issue where assert did not take into account hibernation/sleep mode where the driver limits the max I/O setting.

Added an enhancement to fix the stale Drive fi rm ware version returned by a Power Shell command.
