XP12K (aka Hitachi USP) Storage on vSphere

Anyone doing this?
Is this supported? If it is -- what's best practice? Is there anything that needs to be set with path preferencing?

And considering vSphere does not have its own volume maneger to stripe accross XP12K storage LUNs (for performance) - would LUSE/concats of these LUNs onthe array side be sufficent?

Only USP-V and AMS2000 mentioned. Somehow I have a feeling XP12K's are not really "that" recomended for VI.

Mike.. thanks.. been there before.

I will await for when somoeone who jhas a configuration actually responds. It is "supported" I know but is it recommended? The XP12K does not have that much virtualization and additional stirping of disks on the back end so it requires a layer of striping on the host end - as best practice.
