When checking the last two VMware 6.5 HPE custom images, the bundled qlnativefc drivers are as follows:

VMware 6.5 U3 (Gen9 and higher) = 2.1.81.-0-1
VMware 6.5 U3 (pre Gen9) = 2.1.50.0
VMware 6.5 U2 = 2.1.81.-0-1

For my QMH2672 HBAs none of these are listed in SPOCK for the 8000 / VMware 6.5 config set, only:

2.1.57.1-1
2.1.50.0-1
2.1.57.0
?2.1.73.0 (not sure what the ? means?)
2.1.81.0

I was curious as to what other people do with their VMware builds - do you go with the custom image driver or do you downgrade / upgrade the driver to match SPOCK exactly? It seems strange HPE don't bundle 3PAR supported drivers in the images, or at least qualify the ones that are bundled.

Thanks and regards,
Adrian

I would say that 2.1.81.-0-1 and 2.1.81.0 is the same version.

I go with the drivers in the custom builds unless I find good reasons to go with another version.
