Minimum (oldest) 11.31 OS on BL860C i2 model

I'm trying to find the minimum required 11i v3 (11.31) OS release date for the new BL860C i2 blades (or likely any of the new CPU blades). Everything I see just states 11.31 (or v3) but none stating the minimum enablement OS level of them which is key in my application. I've searched release notes for the O's, product notes for the blades, data sheets and other items.

Has anyone seen documentation, or tried installing an older 11.31 OS on these i2 models?
My biggest concern is that I need to run 11.31 September 2008, nothing newer.
Thanks in advance,
Steven

The BL860C i2 based on the new quag core CPU (Tukwila) came out some months ago, you need march 2010 as minimum.

Hope this helps!

You may be stuck with the very latest March 2010 Release or HWEnable11i patch.
http://www.hp.com/go/hpuxservermatrix
Only mentions 11.31.

The March 2010 Release Notes mention:
http://bizsupport2.austin.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c02023869/c02023869.pdf
Hardware Enablement Bundle for HP-UX 11i v3
HWEnable11i (can also be gotten from the ITRC Patch database.)

...and in addition to the March 2010 release, you might want to check out the additional specific "BL8x0-i2 Depot" software which can be downloaded at software.hp.com and search for "bl8x0" (https://h20392.www2.hp.com/portal/swdepot/displayProductInfo.do?productNumber=BL8x0-i2)...
