Host bus adapter (HBA) parameters and switch parameters

Unless otherwise stated in the hardware compatibility list (HCL), the specified Veritas product supports all fibre channel and iSCSI HBAs and fibre channel switches supported by the platform and storage array manufacturers. For more details, click the link to the HCL.
HBA Support:
    OS HBA model iSCSI software initiator version
    Microsoft Windows Microsoft iSCSI Software Initiator [1] 2.07 or above

    Note 1: The Microsoft iSCSI Software Initiator is supported on any Ethernet NIC card that is supported by the Microsoft iSCSI Software Initiator. In general, the Microsoft iSCSI initiator version listed on the HCL has been tested and qualified at the time of the SFW HA release. However, Veritas will support customers utilizing a newer version. Check with Microsoft on the most current and supported release of the iSCSI initiator. Recommended Microsoft iSCSI Software Initiator setting for adding a new target is to specifically select the adapter and port of the NIC configured for the iSCSI connection instead of selecting the default adapter. There is no DMP support for the Microsoft iSCSI Software Initiator unless an MPIO DSM is available for the specific array.
