The FCA2214 is the HP-branded HBA used in Wintel platforms at present. Given the age of your storage array and ACS I'm guessing your fibre channel infrastructure is 1 GB rather than 2. That's OK, the HBA will dumb itself down to 1 GB just fine, but make sure you get the right kind of cables to make the connection work (probably SC-LC unless you have some kind of trunked fibre infrastructure)

Also consider an ACS upgrade - 8.5 is three releases out of date.
