you are on the right way to check the compatibility matrix,
pls note: read the release notes also.check the firmware bios version, driver version of the HBAs, also before upgrading the FOS, check with ur storage vendor to upgarde the microcode, multipathing SW.

pls find attached the one, but only HBA driver version you can find , rest you can ask ur storage vendor for multipathing SW version too. BTW you have to ask th e storage vendor regarding microcode of the storage also.
