Symantec maintains a Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) for Veritas Storage Foundation & High Availability Solutions 5.1 for Windows Products on the Veritas Support web site. The HCL gives information on HBAs, firmware, and switches that have been tested with each supported array. Check the HCL for details about your hardware before installing this DDI package.

Refer to SFW 5.1SP1 HCL for the latest list of supported arrays. http://entsupport.symantec.com/docs/302144 

IMPORTANT:
Storage arrays may require additional configuration steps or updates to work with Veritas Storage Foundation for Windows and MPIO. Contact the manufacturer of the storage array for details.    

Notes about Microsoft iSCSI:
Setting the load balancing with the Microsoft iSCSI Initiator for an iSCSI device that is claimed by Veritas DMP DSMs does not change the load balancing of the Veritas DMP DSM. Setting the load balancing of an iSCSI device claimed by a Veritas DMP DSM should be done with the SFW VEA GUI or CLI commands.
