MSA20 - Firmware Identification How?

I have an MSA20 enclosure attached to a DL380G4 10GB Ram 6402 controller (option rom configuration for arrays 2.62)


I have read in the ITRC forums that 1.5TB ant 2TB drivers work with an MSA. 


I have purchased a 3TB drive for testing and it has come up in the 6402 boot time config utility as a 801.6GB drive.


I thought that it would at least fail as a 2TB.


Can someone please tell me how to check the firmware. I  haven't yet got an OS on the machine as I'm waiting 2 days for CENTOS 6 to come out.

Re: MSA20 - Firmware Identification How?

Hey, you can use the smartstart CD to check firmware versions. Just load up the ACU or the ADU and you can find lots of information in there.


Do you have a link to where you saw that 3TB disks would work in the MSA20?


Quickspecs for MSA20 says max 1TB.
