Brocade 815 FC HBA and Citrix XenServer

Hi,

We want to make virtualization with HP DL585G6 servers, HP 81B PCIe 8Gb FC HBA’s and Citrix® XenServer® Platinium Ed. Software. But Citrix said there are problems of compatibility with Brocade HBA’s and advised us to use Qlogic HBA’s. Is this True ?

Re: Brocade 815 FC HBA and Citrix XenServer

Hi Ucankut,

Actually the truth is that Brocade HBAs are not yet on the Citrix XenServer HCL.  We are currently working on getting them on there as well as our drivers in-box.  As far as we know there are no compatiblity issues... A user can actually deploy our driver on a XenSource platform but will have to use the NoArch RPMs until we are in-box with XenServer.  I hope this helps.
