We got some replacement drives from HP PN 454273-001 1TB 7.2k drives. We put them into the msa. It completes rebuild but when we run the hp insight diagnostics tests. It comes back as read write error threshold reached. At first we thought it might be just faulty disk. But we now have received three disks and they all exhibits the same behaviour from different slot.
The drives that we received is slightly different. The part number is the same but the sticker got an extra 3G on it and they are HP oem branded disks rather than the standard seagate we get normally. They also don't have the normal HP serial number on it so when I logged a call with HP they had trouble identifying the drive but they eventually found it.
Is it a compatibility issue? I think we upgraded the firmware on the msa half a year ago.
