This is the Storage Device Management System (SDMS) 4.0 driver for Windows NT 4.0 that will work with Symbios C810 PCI SCSI Host Adapter LSI Logic SDMS LSI53C810, LSI53C810A, LSI53C815, LSI53C825, LSI53C825A, LSI53C860, LSI53C875, and LSI53C876.

The LSI Logic Storage Device Management System (SDMS) is a complete software package that solves the increasingly complex problem of managing system I/O.

SDMS provides a standard method to interface SCSI I/O subsystems with devices, operating systems, and application software.

LSI Logic uses the same filenames for their drivers for different Windows operating systems. The driver files are packaged either in separate subdirectories based on the Windows operating system or on different flex disks.

To determine the driver file for Windows NT 4.0, note that the filename ends with .sys extension. For example, SYMC8XX.SYS. (The same is true for Windows 2000.)
