supportmatrix eva6k

Hi,

maybe I'm blind ore something, but searched hp.com and doc.hpcom for a SupportMatrix for what type of hosts,hba's and so on are supported with an eva6000 - didn't find it anywhere.
Can someone provide me an url?

regards,
bernd

Re: supportmatrix eva6k

Some information is in the Quickspecs - more detailled information is in the 'connectivity guides/release notes' which you can download from the documentation page:

Re: supportmatrix eva6k

thank you for the links, although they are not exactly what I searched for.
We want to connect an IBM x346 Server (with Win2003 OS) to our EVA and I'm searching for information what HBAs with what driver and firmware versions are supported to connect to EVA Storage.

Re: supportmatrix eva6k

Thirdparty servers are not explicitly listed in any compatibility table I have seen, the rules look like this:
- need a HP-banded Fibre Channel adapter or
-- its Emulex/Qlogic equivalent
- same rule for the Fibre Channel switch
-- need to use HP-qualified firmware revision

- the server must be on the operating system vendor's HCL

- the vendor must be an active member of TSAnet

- customer must have a support agreement with the vendor

Hi Bernd,

I think you find the info you need in this pdf. Here you find an overview of the supported HBA on W2K3.

Re: supportmatrix eva6k

There is no single doc. You will also find conflicting docs which you need to check very carefully. The XL do not support more than 3 host ports connected to brocade 3200, 3800, and some 3850 switches due to firmware issues not getting fixed. I have 6 of these switches and discovered this after pacing my 8k order.
