3.110 - that is a _giant_ gap and will require a lot of planning.

Please do not try to get hold of the firmware and upgrade the system without any planning.

but do VSC 3.11 will work with the HP8/40 SAN Switch

Re: EVA3000 and 8/40 Base 24-ports SAN Switch

Its very important for me to know if EVA3000 VSC 3.11 will work with the HP8/40 SAN Switch
in SPOCKS there is no much information about V3.11 firmware

There is information in SPOCK about v3, it's in the menu on the upper-right.

8/40 switch is supported.

I hope so because otherwise I have to go to VCS 4.1 which is HUGE jump

Till 3.110 the EVA3000 is Active / Passive. Which means that you can (have to) use other MPIO software then from version 4.1 and up.
