VMware troubles

Well, I'm not a hardware guru, but from my experience I figured out the following:

Dell Servers + QLogic HBA + IBM Storage = troubles
Dell Servers + Emulex HBA + IBM Storage = working ok
Dell Servers + QLogic HBA + EMC Storage = working ok

Other one issue is:

Any server + Any HBA + Any storage - Fiber Channel Switch = troubles (unclean filesystem on Linux guests with EXT3 filesystem)
