Hi, we have HP servers (HP DL360G9) with HCL compliant SmartArray controller P440ar for VSAN 6.0U2.
I see that VSAN 6.5 is released, and almost all other vendors are compliant with 6.5 VSAN/ESXi, but HP is not listed. Is there a reason why HP hardware is not yet certified in VMware HCL for VSAN ?
I've heard that HP have been struggling with some firmware and driver issues with these controllers and that they have a backlog of certifications to do. I think that firmware version 4.52 should be released on the vSAN HCL for both ESXi 6.0u2 and 6.5 soon though (end of Feb is the latest I heard).
