    VSAN 6.7 U3 –FW for UCSC-SAS-M5- Cisco C220-M5SX

    shankarsingh Novice

      Hi

      We have three node All Flash VSAN cluster where we are running ESXi 6.5 U1g with Cisco C220-M5SX  model and Intel(R) Xeon(R) Gold 6126 CPU @ 2.60GHz Processor .

       

      Our current vcenter is VCSA 6.7 ,so planning for upgrading VCSA to 6.7 U3 and the Cisco FW from 3.1(3) to 4.0(4) for hosts  and then upgrade ESXi from 6.5U1g to 6.7 U3 and finally VSAN Disk Format 10.

       

      So I have verified compatibility checks for HW with FW/Driver ,but still I need some clarification on RAID Controller firmware compatibility with VSAN 6.7 U3

       

      As per below Vmware VSAN compatibility Matrix, For (UCSC-SAS-M5) Mode, Vmware recommended lsi_msgpt35 version 09.00.00.00-5vmw.670 Driver and 09.00.05.00 Firmware ,But when I upgrade Cisco FW to 4.0(4),SAS-HBA firmware will be 09.00.00.08.

       

      https://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/detail.php?deviceCategory=vsanio&productid=41790&vsanrncomp=true&vcl=true

       

      So does VSAN 6.7 U3 supports 09.00.00.08 Firmware with 09.00.00.00-5vmw.670 Drive for UCSC-SAS-M5(Cisco 12G Modular SAS HBA (max 16 drives).

       

      Thanks in advance for your support
