Other servers and processors might be added to this list in the future, if they qualify. Check your server product notes for confirmation that your server has subsequently been qualified for device support.


Caution

Caution  -  Any unsupported configuration causes the host to power off as soon as it is powered on. A fault is generated on the service processor when an unsupported configuration is detected. The fault clears after the unsupported configuration is fixed and the host is powered on.



Note -  Slots that can contain either SAS HDD or NVMe storage drives have labels with both HDD and NVMe identification marks on the server panel.

Note -  Refer to your server product notes for up-to date information on supported servers, operating systems, and required patchsets.
