Shalom,

Yes there is support.

You will need to manually modify the /etc/modprobe.conf file and rebuild the initrd ramdisk file.

after moving it.
mkinitrd -f initrd-$(uname -r).img $(uname -r)

You need to make sure the chosen card is compatible with the Integrity series server, this hardware supports less variety than say a PC.

I don't know a lot about Hitachi storage, but the sytem will probably be able to work with the storage.

My best experiences are with qlogic adapters. No troubles ever found with these adapters.

Thanks sofar .
Hitachi HDS only supports Emulex cards as they told me.
The adviced HP emulex cards could be with a not just or wrong firmware level.
We could not find the appropriate Info to make both party's glad , HP integrity Server Support HBA - Hitachi HDS HBA

Not true. Hitachi supports qlogic adapters also. Ask for an official compatibility guide. We have Hitachi Storages NSC55 and WMS, some of our hosts have Qlogic HBAs.
