I doubt it ever will be.  EVA8000 has been EOL for almost 2 years (if not longer) and was released over 7 years ago.

its up to HP to do the support matrix testing, and I doubt they would do that testing for a 7+ year old array thats EOL.

It may not be on the supported list, but it does work fine, for us anyway.

Nope, we're not using SRM and wouldn't have a need for it on the clusters that access the EVA 8000s (which we're phasing out).

Have you had the need to call support recenctly? Just wondering if they'll still provide best effort support?
