Obtaining disks for a MSA2012fc

Hey guys,

 

I have a first generation MSA2012fc with a 3.5" enclosure (AJ750A), and need to add some HDD capacity to it.

 

The quickspecs page here lists supported disks:

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/12991_div/12991_div.HTML

 

Unfortunately, none of the listed SAS disks are still sold.

 

The G2 of the MSA discussed here:

http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/13187_na/13187_na.html#Configuration

 

Supports the exact same AJ750A enclosure, and all the disks the G1 supports. It does however, also support AP860A, a 600GB SAS disk that is still available for purchase.

 

There's a feeling that, surely if the enclosure supports this disk, you would heavily expect it to work in the G1 SAN. I'm aware HP often avoid updating quickspec pages once a piece of hardware is superceeded, and this doesn't mean it won't work.

 

Has anyone had any experience with newer drives in this system?
