Exchange 2010 BPA Reports Drivers out of Date

Exchange 2010 SP3 RU8 Enterprise 64 bit
Windows 2008 R2 64 Bit

Ran Exchange BPA "Health Check"  which reports three warnings

Network interface driver file is more than two years old
driver is ASYNCMAC.SYS
Storage driver is more than two years old
driver is vhdmp.sys
Storage driver is more than two years old
driver is megasas.sys

I found the megasas.sys from Dell support site for my Dell PowerEdge R210 server

I can not find vhdmp.sys 6.1.7601.17514
or asyncmac.sys 6.1.7600.16385

Anyone know where I can get up to date drivers from?  I Checked on Dell and Microsoft no luck

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks Tom

Just ignore those.
It is reporting the drivers are over two years old, but in many cases there are no newer drivers. Both of the drivers that you have flagged as Microsoft drivers and the only way there is an update to those is with a new OS.

Not mandatory. I normally ignore this warning. If you have any issue with current drivers, then you can look to update to latest one. Again that depends on product vendor, if there any no updates, then you don't need to install.

As stated above these warning can be ignored if there are no drivers available on the Vendors website. If you are in fact using Microsoft Drivers, you should update to the most recent drivers that the Vendor is still supporting. Otherwise you can ignore as the others have suggested.
