    You can use the System Storage Interoperation Center (SSIC) to find the answer to that sort of question:

    http://www.ibm.com/systems/support/storage/ssic

    Select 'IBM System Storage Entry Disk' in the Storage Family filter, then 'Storwize V3500' in the Storage Model filter.

    Now you can either scroll down to the Operating System listing, to see if the version of AIX you want is there, then click on that, or click on further search filters (such as the Connection Protocol, or Server Model) then look at the OS listing.

    Hopefully that gives the answer you're looking for.

    Sorry, not sure I understand the question?

    The Information Center says:

    You must install multipathing software on all IBM® System p® AIX® hosts that are attached to the Storwize® V3500 system.

    On IBM System p hosts, the subsystem device driver (SDD) or the subsystem device driver path control module (SDDPCM) provides multipathing support.

    So at that point you can jump over to the SDD/SDDPCM support websites and work out which version is recommended for your desired version of AIX.

    Also, if you scroll down the page on the SSIC then you'll see the Multipathing section.

    So, having selected the storage system as V3500 and your host OS, e.g. AIX TL<n>, then that box is populated with the supported multipathing drivers and version numbers.

    I check the SSIC,

    V3500 only support AIX5.3 TL12, but my version AIX 5.3 TL9

    Curious. My search, which used a different selection for 'Server Model' returned different results.

    See screenshot attached.

    That looks like a mistake to me, so I've submitted feedback to point this out.

    In the short term, you can contact your local IBM rep to submit a SCORE/RPQ request for formal support of your specific configuration.
