In an attempt to make an easy to access resource, if anyone encounters any hardware that has trouble or is incompatible with ZOS post it here an I will edit the OP as we go. A couple to start,
Samsung SSDs when installed behind a raid controller may behave unexpectedly
Any device that requires a driver install under Linux. Found this out the hard way with an io-scale nvme drive
Intel QAT cards do some extremely strange things in a box running zos. (there’s a whole story behind that)
Broadwell network cards, I have found so far that if you lookup the openwrt compatability it seems to be pretty close to zos nic wise.
Integrated nics in r710/r910 (can anyone speak to the 610?)
2.5 Gigabit LAN Dragon RTL8125BG (Need to investigate other Realtek nics)
