As per this neohapsis archive inserting the card in core IO is not supported,

Hi Luis,

Check this document :

http://www.docs.hp.com/hpux/onlinedocs/J6374-90002/J6374-90002.html

In the adapter section you will see the card you are refering too - it has support for the K580 (and boot support if later required) on all pa releases. The DS is just a jbod - no big deal there.

cheers,

James.

Yes the A6685A card does work in a HSC slot. You can get the driver software from here:

You will still need to install the FC MASS storage subsystem from your core OS CD.
Anyone for a Mutiny ?

Luis,

My support matrix shows that this will work on a K580.

Luis,

From that document I attached the link to check the following chapter :

--> Fibre Channel Adapter Installation
--> Installation Prerequisites

Indeed Karthik was correct - no boot support - BUT the card is now supported on the K580 on the Core IO. However, you may need to upgrade your firmware/hardware critical patches.

Tnhanks for your confirmation, i have the firmware version 42.01 and the Fibre Channel Mass Storage Path, so the only think i need to install is the driver and the adapter.

thanks for your help
