My installation on H200 card has gone without issues, both with stock
debian 2.6.32 kernel and also with Proxmox kernel.

If you're buying H710 card, OMSA 7.0 has been just released packaged for
debian that supports that generation of controllers. (previous 6.5
version only supported H700/H200 but not H710). Check
