Is MSA 2040 Certified for Windows ODX?

 

Is MSA 2040 Certified for Windows ODX?

Hello,

 

I have a MSA 2040 SAN and was wondering if it is certified as compatible for Windows Offloaded Data Transfer?

I use Windows Server 2016 Datacenter on my hosts and all LUNs are formated with NTFS.

I've asked the same question before, no answers:

As far as I'm concerned it's not supporting ODX in anyway. With ODX enabled I even have lots of weird issues whenever a link fails or a host fails and a failover has to occur. ODX is good on paper but HP's support is abysmal at best.

The MSA DOES support T10 UNMAP space reclaim though when you use virtual disks, that's quite cool (but we dont use it :))

Tried to give you step by step SPOCK links along with applied filter.

Download the PDF and in page 4 you will get it's clearly mentioned that Microsoft Offline Data Transfers (ODX) is not  supported
