Smart HBA H241 compatibility matrix with MSA storage series

Hi all and @Yeni-HPE_MSA 

I have 2 ProLiant DL360 Gen9 with Smart HBA H241 (Product No:750054-001)

I plan to replace MSA 2040 which is not compatible with ESXi 7.0 

is Smart HBA H241 compatible with MSA 2060?

I researched and could not find any hardware compatibility matrix online. can someone share a link to verify Smart HBA H241 compatibility with ESXi and HPE MSA series?

Thanks

HPE storage compatibility matrix is https://www.hpe.com/storage/spock
Single Point Of Connectivity Knowledge.
You will need an HPE passport to access.
The H241 is not qualified on the MSA 6th gen products,  the Gen9 servers were End Of Life prior to the MSA 2060 release.
You options for staying in a supported configuration are: 
1. Go to MSA 2050
2. Update your server/hba
Check with your HPE Account team for options as well.

Hi Jon,

as I researched. I am not sure if I did it correctly

HP DL360 gen9 is not supporting any other HBA rather than H241. So we can place an MSA2050 at most.

is there any option to put an HBA on HP DL360 gen9 which supports MSA2060?

we do not change the server, we can change HBA and storage. 

OS will be ESXi7.x

 

thanks.

Unfortunately, no there are no supported SAS HBAs for MSA Gen6 that are also supported in Gen9 servers.
Gen9 servers support the P441 and H241 for external SAS support.  The MSA 6th Gen supports Gen10 and above servers which use the P408 and E208 SAS HBAs for external SAS connection.

Hi JonPaul,

Our supplier offered 16 GB FC HBA compatible with  HP Gen9 and HP MSA2060.

is this possible?

It appears that the SN1200E and SN1100Q would be viable options.
Check SPOCK https://www.hpe.com/storage/SPOCK for compatibility with the Storage Device (MSA) and review the quickspecs for the Proliant Gen9 server for the compatible HBAs to the servers.
