·CCI Version 01-23-03/06 or later
·Additional filesets from 6.1 SP3 specifically above what comes on 6.1 EE base media
·cluster.es.tc
·cluster.msg.en_US.tc

Additional HP software requirements
The following HP software and microcode were used as part of the testing:
1. HP StorageWorks XP Continuous Access Software (no version needed)
2. HP RAID Manager: 1.25.11
3. XP 24000 Microcode: 60-08-08-00/00
4. XP 12000 Microcode: 50-09-98-00/08
5. MPIO: MPIO ODM (5403) devices.fcp.disk.HP.xparray.mpio.rte 5.4.0.3



Remember that support is contingent on the common denominator across all the pieces. For example, SVC Metro Mirroring is supported at HA 5.2 and above. However, it is NOT supported in a VIOS environment in 5.2. Hopefully this chart makes sense. Any questions feel free to email me at sbodily@us.ibm.com
