Hello Experts,

We have planning to implement new SAN (Compellent SC8000). We will connect Dell ESXi servers R620 to this SAN via FC.

Now we have some existing HP Servers (DL380G7) , which are planning to Add it to the NEW San. IN order to do that we need to add new HBA Cards to the server. We are planning to buy new HBA  Cards HP 82Q (HP Part Number AJ764A).

Now , my question is

Is this cards HP 82Q (HP Part Number AJ764A) compatible with Compellent SAN SC8000?

Please Advise.

Thanks,

-Prashant Girennavar.

You need to check two lists

Check the VMware Hardware Compatability Lists HCL here

The VMware Hardware Compatibility List is the detailed lists showing actual vendor devices that are either physically tested or are similar to the devices tested by VMware or VMware partners. Items on the list are tested with VMware products and are known to operate correctly.Devices which are not on the list may function, but will not be supported by VMware.

and also ensure you check the firmware levels, and card with Dell.
