I received an email from a client who was trying to install Windows Server 2003 Enterprise 64-bit on a Cisco UCS B Series B230 blade with the following error message during the install:
A problem exists with the .SIF file on the manufacturer-supplied disk:
“Illegal or missing file types specified in section Files.Scsi.qlfcoe.”
The administrator indicated that he had used the qlogic driver from the folder:
… found in the bundle: ucs-b2xx-drivers.1.3.1h.iso.
Since I knew the environment was deployed with B230 blades with the M81KR (Palo) mezzanine card and that the folder path indicates he used the M71KR (Menlo) drivers, I replied asking him to locate the proper Palo driver. I didn’t get to see the install myself by when I followed up a few weeks later, they said that the M81KR driver worked.
