The io compatibility guide isn't clear for supported hba's with vi 3.01:
It show's ok for 3.0 but nothing for 3.01 (emulex lpfcdd_7xx and qlogic qla2x00_7xx)
This would mean there is not supported hba for an MS Cluster Setup in 3.01.
Is this an typo or reality?
sorry, interpreted your statement differently.
I see what you are saying but there have been numerous articles relating to the support of MSCS with VI3, the newer driver is to support 4G cards but will also run 1 or 2G. I have MSCS currently using 1G Emulex HBA without issue. as long as you follow the rules ref. setting HBA at 2G and the KB article below, i doubt VMware or Microsoft would say it's unsupported.
and this KB covers the explanation of the driver/HBA speed:
