Re: 3PAR Hard Drives

The 3PAR will always adjust the firmware to match the 3PAR firmware once inserted and admitted.

Hence you can only use supported drives. If the 3PAR is not aware of the disk model and does not have firmware for it, the drive cannot be used.

Not sure what happens if it meanwhile has a 512 format instead of 520 ... probably it won't work.


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Hi @Sheldon Smith,

Erasing disks looks like part of the compliance of Brian's organization. He initially stated that he will receive the disks after erasing.

OK, whatever. 

The 3PAR will erase them again before it uses any of the chunklets.
