Samsung 883 DCT 3.84TB In MSA2050

Has anybody ever tried to install Samsung 883 3.84 TB drives into an HP MSA2050 San?

Do you know if this is compatible?

@Ger-IT : HPE does not recommend using Non-HPE Drives on their Arrays. Incase if you do buy ( incase if you haven't ) or you have already bought one and it does work somehow, it won't be covered under contract/warranty  and there is a good chance of the drive/s not getting detected intermittently etc - causing data loss situation. Best would be to procure a HPE drive which is certified and compatible with the MSA2050 Arrays. You can refer to the drive section on the "MSA 2050 Spare parts" link.

@Ger-IT 

 

There are certain SKU/Product numbers of the hard drives that are tested and compatible with MSA 2050 enclosures. From a technical standpoint,  all the hard drives and the drive enclosure have their own firmware that makes them compatible.

 

Please refer “Select Your Drives” section on page 18 from the technical paper link:

Thus, the Samsung drive that is mentioned in the post is not listed, which means it was never tested and not compatible to work drive enclosure.
