SA 5302 in a Proliant 6000

Will a SA 5302 work in a Proliant 6000? We had a SA 3150ES card die on us recently and need to get a replacement. 3150ES are hard to find so we are looking at getting a SA 5302 instead. I know the Proliant 6000 has 64-bit PCI slots but are they 66 Mhz or 33 Mhz? If they are 33 Mhz will the SA 5302 work at 33 Mhz?

The Proliant 6000 slots 2-6 are all 64-bit/33 MHz PCI slots. The one shared PCI/ISA is 32-bit/33 Mhz. No compatibility information found on the SA302 with older systems such as the Proliant 6000.

Does this mean HP does not support it?

Correct, the SA5302 would not be supported by HP in the Proliant 6000. To see the Smart Array controllers that were supported, look at the PL 6000 TechSpecs:

http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/10542_div/10542_div.html#Storage

Here you will see the following SA controllers listed:
4250ES
4200
3200
3100ES

So you can certainly try - but it's not an HP-supported solution.
