HP Proliant BL460c Gen9 HBA bug

Environment
FACT : HP ProLiant BL460c Gen9 Server
FACT : HP FlexFabric 20Gb 2-port 650FLB Adapter
FACT : ESX 5.5 U3
FACT : Updated to lates OA and VC FC version (4.45)
 
Questions/Symptoms
SYMPTOM : Storage path may disappear after 650FLB Firmware upgrade to 10.5.65.21.
SYMPTOM :Problem is seen with Virtual Connect FLexfabric 10/24 and 20/40 modules.
SYMPTOM : No network avaiable during install of ESXi (HP version), so fails.
 
Upgrading with latest firmware (10.5.65.21) on 650 FLB may cause the path to the storage to disappear. This issue may occur when using the latest SPP Version 2015.06.0.
 
Cause
CAUSE: This issue only occurs because of the 650FLB firmware version 10.5.65.21
 
Answer/Solution
FIX: This issue is currently under investigation
As Workaround downgrade the firmware to 10.2.477.23 using (SPP) Version 2015.04.0 Or Reduce the uplink to 1 per Virtual connect SAN fabric or OneView Fibre Channel Uplink set.
Do this by applying the interactive mode and ONLY “upgrade” the Emulex LOM firmware back down to 10.2.477.23.
