We are planning on a FOS upgrade from 6.4.3c to 7.2.1. We are concerned about HBA firmware. Our vendor only provides us with supported HBA firmware versions not compatable versions. How do you determine if an HBA is compatable other than updating the FOS? Thanks. Bob

In most cases you bought the switches at the same vendor you're buying your HBA's (or servers).
So on that basis your vendor has 721 tested against some firmware versions of their HBA's
Look at the compatibility matrixes they supply.
For instance HP has SPOCK and EMC has ELab navigator, your vendor is bound to have something similar
