DS14MK4 Basic question Vds hardware provider

Hi,

I bought a used DS14MK4 from eBay and I am absolutely new to SAN s ... Basically I connected the Device via FC to my IBM server and installed the windows storage manager ( Win Server 2008 R2 ) for san. In the hardware manager under drives I am able to see all in the shelf installed drives correctly working. The main problem is, that I need the VDS Hardware Provider ( Error in Windows Storage Manager: Windows can't find the VDS or VDS hardware provider )  to create LUN s.

To cut a long story short: Where can I  get / download the hardware provider ?

Thank you all

Florian

In Windows 2008 R2 a hotfix is needed. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/981892

In Windows 2012 the hotfix is not needed.
