DL380 Gen9 PCI Smart HBA H241 and IBM V3700 Problems

Hello,
I have problems with compatiblity PCI Smart HBA H241 with IBM V3700, after connecting both of them with sas cable and create  3 volums on IBM v3700 i shared them to DL380 Gen9 then In dl380 gen 9 in h241 configuration i can see only first volumen, every change in ibmv3700 to be refreshed in h241 configuration need dl380 to been restarted, if i remove first volumen from v3700 then after restart dl380 i see second volument but still only one is visible..


I have seen in google problem like this but havent seen solution, unfortonelty hpe support told me to change IBM v3700 storage to one from hp, everything is new i am looking for any other solution, maybe another hp sas controller is compatible with v3700.

H241 is not V3700 supported HBA. 

More details here:

See attached file for filter selections.

It is known issue that H241 does not work with majority of non-HPE storage. You need LSI based pure SAS HBA (nonRAID).

Such as LSI 9207-8e, LSI 9300-8e, LSI 9400-8e (or in Lenovo parlance N2225 or 430-8e). Be careful to get proper SAS cables, as the new adapters have mini SAS HD connector (same as V3700 has)
