Just wondering if anyone knows of any HP documentation regarding running HPSA Cores on virtual hardware (ESX specifically). I'm putting a design together and theres a debate internally as to whether or not it is supported for production use.
Has anyone got a link/doc I can refer too?

For these type of questions it´s always handy the Supported Platforms matrix:
It mentions in a note:
Note 3 - SA 9.10 cores running on VMware ESX VM's are supported when specific requirements are met. For details on these requirements, please download and read the
“SA_9.10_Simple_Adv_Installation_Guide” on the http://h20230.www2.hp.com/selfsolve/manuals website.
So, it´s possible, have a look at the Simple/Advancaed Install guide for more details.
If you find that this or any post resolves your issue, please be sure to mark it as an accepted solution.

Installing on a vm is perfectly fine, just be careful of replicating it.
Cloning a system with HPSA installed can be tricky.
Copying the vm is fine as a backup, but cloning removes some vital OS elements that are tied into the HPSA installation.
We are attempting to work throught this very issue of cloning having broken our install.
