MSA 2000fc compatible HDDs



I have a MSA 2000fc G2 with a mix of 5x300 GB SAS and 5x750 GB SATA drives. Due to some misfortune, some of SATA drives became unusable and need to be replaced. Also I thought about SAS drives upgrade. I asked one of the local HP partners and they offered me 600 GB SAS and 2 TB SATA. I checked MSA 2000fc G2 specification and did not found any information about compatibility with such drives, the largest compatible ones were 300 GB SAS and 1 TB SATA. But the spec looks outdated.


So my question is: what actually largest HDDs of both types are supported by MSA 2000fc G2?

I did some tests and found that 2TB SATA drives were successfully recognized and I was able to create a RAID vdisk on them.
