P2000 G3 SAS: VAAI in a Blade SAS Switch Environment

Hi,

 

has anybody manged to get VAAI working in a blade sas environment? Is it even supported?

 

We have following setup:

- C3000 Chassis

- 2 x 6G SAS Switch Interconnect

- 1 x P2000 G3 SAS (dual controller, TS230P008 Firmware)

- 3 x BL460c G7 with vSphere ESXi 4.1 U2 running on them

 

This setup works fine, the servers are connected to the P2000 through P712m controllers. But VAAI seems not to be supported. We installed the VAAI Plugin on each of the servers but they don't seem to recognize the plugin ("Hardware acceleration: unknown", according to the screenshot).

 

Best regards,

Matthias
