Does 7.3 support any of the Apollo hardware, such as the XL230a Gen9?


Re: HP Insight CMU v7.3 is now available on "Software Updates and Licensing" site

CMU v7.3 requires a driver update patch to support the H-series adapters like H240 smart HBA.

Is this for a internal use or for external customer?
