NEW FC 300GB disks ok with XCS6.000?

We are using EVA8000 running XCS code of 6.000.
We purchased new disks to install. The new disks is showing as model # BD300DAJZF with FW of HP00.

Is this disk ok to use with our current configuration?

Thanks,

Louis

I can't see it in the documentation - here is a cut and paste from the documents which contain the string "BD300DAJZF":

Most likely this is because XCS V6.000 has been set 'inactive' quite some time ago due to dangerous bugs in the space management code and no more tests have been run against that release.
