EVA6400 with FATA

We have EVA6400 with all FC HDD. We need to install FATA disks, now we have 7 disks but as per the standard we shold have 8 FATA disks to create a raid group. Please suggest. We also have EVA4400 with FATA + FC disks. ..

Hello,

you can mix FC with Fata disk in EVA6400 - but you need at least 8 drives to create new disk group in EVA. And - you need drives compatible with your EVA.

Hi SimIT,

You can find EVA6400 compatible disks in the following link.

And yes you can mix two different types of disk in a DG but that is not a recommended setup. As mentioned by Jan Soska you need min 8 disks to create a DG or to initialize an EVA.

Re: EVA6400 with FATA

minimum: 8 disks (FC or FATA) or 6 SSD in 2 shelfs

maximum:  18 shelfs * 12 drives = 216 disks
