IBM DS300 Firmware 7.01 gone

We have a couple of IBM DS300 SAN devices currently running on Firmware v7.00

IBM technotes recommend that I flash firmware of certain hard disk drives to address various drive issues. - no problem.  But it notes that for the IBM DS300 and DS400, the device firmware must be updated to v7.01 before the hard drive firmware is flashed.  Also no problem.

Great - IBM site points to a dead link on the Adaptec site.  No firmware flash to be found.  Equipment is too old for IBM support to have reference to the equipment on file.  

Where can I find v7.01 firmware for DS300 DS/300?
Did Adaptec OEM the DS300 as something else? if so what was it so I can hunt the firmware for that down.

You will have to ask Adaptec.  They made the box for IBM and IBM just put their badge on it.

I contacted Adaptec support and they got back very quickly in a professional manner.  They provided FTP download for the file from thier site.  

Your answer was correct and resulted in the problem being solved.  Cudos for Adaptec support helping out with discontinued product as well.
