DL380 G7 - Oracle Linux drivers for HBA



I am configuring a server to act as database host. I was planning to have a DL380G7 connected to a P2000 G3 MSA via a HP 82B PCIe 8Gb Fibre Channel Dual Port Host Bus Adapter (AP770A).


1) The server page has got a PSP for Oracle Linux, so the OS is supported for this HW (and viceversa according to Oracle)

2) The HBA specs page lists the MSA as compatible hardware.



3) The HBA doesn't list Oracle Linux as supported Operating System.


My question is: would the Oracle Linux PSP for the ProLiant DL380G7 include the drivers for this HBA? The Oracle Linux OS is indeed completely based on RHEL, and that OS is listed as compatible with the HBA...
