Do I need to crossflash HPE H220 Host Bus Adapter to IT Mode?

Since HPE H220 is already a HBA card without RAID, do I need to flash it to IT Mode or can I use with original latest firmware by HP which i think the latest is v15.10.10.00

According to this Old forum thread it needs to be flashed in IT mode

Anyway, “v15” does not sound right…
Latest firmwares are P20.00.07.00 for 9200 series, like this H220 (LSI 2308), and P16.00.12.00 for 9300 series. Time for an upgrade.
