Good morning,
we plan to migrate our server from HP EVA diskaarray to HP3PAR, how is it supported ? Server is HP DL380G7. We must update firmware of the server and HBA, are there any issues fo SLES 11 SP3 ? Will it starts OK ? Are there drivers for this array ?
Thanks and best regards

You should probably ask HP but I believe it will work fine. You didn't mention which HBA's you are using but I found this document which stats that both Qlogic and Emulex works: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:AR7bUKDCAucJ:h20565.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display%3Fsp4ts.oid%3D5383451%26docId%3Demr_na-c02663748%26docLocale%3Den_US+&cd=1&hl=en&ct=clnk&gl=se

Hi,
thanks for the answer, I forgot to write a HBA chip - it is Emulex:

hwinfo | grep Emulex
info.vendor = 'Emulex Corporation'
pci.subsys_vendor = 'Emulex Corporation'
pci.vendor = 'Emulex Corporation'
info.vendor = 'Emulex Corporation'
pci.subsys_vendor = 'Emulex Corporation'
pci.vendor = 'Emulex Corporation'

There seems to be drivers for it: https://drivers.suse.com/driver-process/pub/update/Emulex/sle11sp3/common/
