MSA60 supported with E500, P600, P800. All controllers support for greater than 2TB in a single logical drive.
DL380G4 use BIOS and MBR, not GPT.

Thanks for your reply, but if using basic MBR, it not support over 2TB, i am not using that partition for boot , just for store data, does DL380 G4 support GPT table for that purpose?

DL380G4 can't boot from GPT partition,
but OS runing on that server can use GPT partitioned disks for data.

About Windows Server and GPT see:
