Support PolicySupport of Non-Compliant Environments A non-compliant configuration is defined as the use of the HP 3PAR Storage System outside of current published specifications including Storage System Technical Specifications, InForm OS Configuration Matrix (this document), and the HP 3PAR Implementation Guides. The Configuration Matrix represents the logical and physical elements that are fully qualified and supported by HP. Any issues or problems with supported configurations receive our highest priority, our very best effort, and have a high probability of being reproduced, quickly explained, and aggressively corrected. Where a customer consciously chooses to implement components or configurations that are not included in this matrix, they do so at their own risk, and with the understanding that any issues for such non-compliant configurations will be handled on a commercially reasonable best effort basis, at a priority level subservient to supported configurations, and could invoke an extended response and resolution timeframe. It is also possible that complex problems in non-compliant configurations cannot be reproduced within HP QA and test lab environments, and the customer should be prepared to provide their own lab environment for problem reproduction and troubleshooting activities. The endresult of a troubleshooting exercise for a non-compliant configuration could be the realization that an unsupported element might not function within HPs ecosystem, resulting in the need to revert, change, or upgrade disruptively in order to resolve a specific problem. Under most circumstances, HP will not specifically refuse to troubleshoot non-compliant configurations, but its important for customers with non-compliant configurations to understand the risks associated with deployment of these configurations. Customers implementing non-compliant configurations should be prepared with Disaster Recovery solutions and contingency plans to work around these configurations if the need arises. Its also strongly recommended that non-compliant configurations be brought into compliance with the Configuration Matrix as soon as possible. Support of OEM FC Host Bus Adapters We qualify storage systems for FC SAN connectivity to QLogic and Emulex branded FC HBAs and associated drivers/FW across all OS platforms we support, and branded HBA models (HP, IBM, AIX, and others) applying specifically to the cases recorded in this configuration matrix. Whether listed in this configuration matrix or not, we will support rebranded versions of QLogic and Emulex HBAs under the following conditions: The rebranded HBA HW is identical to that sold under the QLogic or Emulex brand. The driver, FW, and BIOS versions listed as qualified in this configuration matrix are used on those rebranded HBAs.

Note: HBAs that are not listed have not been tested by HP.
