The Adaptec ANA62011LV 64-bit PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter is used in conjunction with the Duralink Manager and Duralink Failover utilities by Adaptec, Inc. The device driver is needed by the Adaptec ANA62011LV 64-bit PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter for communicating with the operating system and the Duralink software suite. The correct installation of the device driver will aid in employing the link mirroring functionality of the software suite used for Fast Ethernet. This device driver provides the ANA62011LV 64-bit PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter functions similar to FDDI dual-homing. This fast Ethernet adapter driver aids the Duralink failover to permit a server to sustain its connection to a network in the event that the link to the Ethernet fails. The Duralink failover does this by establishing a network capability with a running link and a link on hot standby. When the running link fails, the link on hot standby is then activated to maintain the server-user network link and to preserve the availability of the server.
Unless you update your drivers regularly you may face hardware performance issues.
To check your drivers you should manually verify every device on your system for driver updates
With the aid of the device driver, the Duralink failover comes online if there is link loss, unusual hardware state interrupt and when the other drivers has lost contact with the adapter’s active mechanism. It will likewise be online when a port is not able to transmit for a particular period and when there are unusual receive and send counters like too much errors or collisions on the network section. On the other hand, the device driver is also used by the Duralink Manager to communicate with the Adaptec ANA62011LV 64-bit PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter. The Duralink Manager is a utility for data compilation used for simplifying server optimization. It can log server information pertaining to error messages, uptime and other variables related to server performance. It is highly recommended you run a free registry scan for and Adaptec ANA62011LV 64-bit PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter errors before installing any driver updates.
