HP P721m/2GB 650072-B2

Hi All,

 

I'm wanting to confirm what are the max physical sas drive sizes that this array card can support ?

 

For example a P700M will only detect a 2TB sas drive, even if you attached a 3TB sas disk, 2TB will be detected

 

I'm wanting to attached some 3TB and 4TB SAS disks to the P721m card, just trying to confirm max PV size

 

Regards, Daniel

Best thing I could find was this:

 

http://h20564.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c03499000&sp4ts.oid=7102963

 

Suggests that at least 3TB drives are supported.  In reviewing QuickSpecs, drive compatability is deferred to the drive enclosure being used.  However, nothing in the Quick Specs for, say a D2700, mention what controllers support what drives.

 

Also, FYI, the P721m is only supported in Gen8+ blades.

I've since run 4TB drives without any issues on this raid card (P721m/2GB 650072-B2)

I"m sure at some point I"ll try 6TB drives
