p400 smart array supported drives

Has anyone tried using generic SATA drives with the p400.

I was recently told the controller will only recognize specific drives with HP firmware.

Is that true because I want to use WD Raptor drives with it?

Thanks

Re: p400 smart array supported drives

hi,

the list supplied by HP referred to the "compatibility" is only for the "tested" and certified HDDs.

I've tried WD Raptor, also.

they work.

bye.

How many points should I assign to replies?
Every response to your question is eligible to earn between 1-10 points. No need to worry about running out of points - when a truly awesome reply rolls in that deserves a 10, you will be able to assign it a 10! However, be careful to assign points based on the value that a reply truly provides. Use the following scale as a guideline:



o N/A: The answer was simply a point of clarification to my original question

o 1-3: The answer didn't really help answer my question, but thanks for your assistance!

o 4- 7: The answer helped with a portion of my question, but I still need some additional help!

o 8-10: The answer has solved my problem completely! Now I'm a happy camper!


Although assigning points is not mandatory, it is a key component of a strong, interactive community, and it is STRONGLY ENCOURAGED. Others have taken time to help you, so please take a moment to give them credit for their assistance!
