HP Smart Array P800 Controller

I have an old HP ProLiant DL185 G5 Storage Server with twelve large form factor (LFF) 3.5" drive bays and HP Smart Array P800/512MB Controller with dual battery-backed write cache (BBWC), which I like to reconfigure into a Linux cloud storage.

I would like to ask if the P800 controller can handle drives in exess of 2TB per bay on the LFF of the server. The drives I am after are the Seagate Iron Wolf Pro.

With best regards

Fabian
