P212 seems to be covered by cciss _but_ you should look into 3.6.14
release and check from the source files (readme, release notes and/or
doc) if P212 is supported specifically under this version.
If you are thinking in getting a Proliant server, you can also look here:

If 100% compatibility is a must, maybe buying the same controller you are
currently using with your server would be the best approach. Is the only
way to ensure the new piece of hardware will work in the same manner as
it does now.
