Does anyone know what make of disk HP are using in their 4TB SATA Midline & why WD RE4 don't work?
So we use D2600 crates with HP 2TB disks, and just buy WD2003FYYS - pop them in old HP caddies. bonus: 5yr warranty, half price of HP.
We just tried a set of 4TB disks WD4000FYYZ, and each time the D2600 is powered up, random disks are labled as failed (different every restart). Odd, as D2600 sees disks and creates arrays fine - it just incorrectly fails disks that on restart.
- If anyone knows what disks HP ship, that would be great as we can buy those
- Does anyone know if firmware updates for D2600 are likely to make these 4TB disks work in the future, or why the disks might be causing the error. Guess I've a dozen 4TB disks that don't work.
[summary: no answers as of 01/05/2012: My testing indicates non-HP WD2003FYYS work fine in MSA60 an D2600, WD4000FYYZ are seen only in the D2600, but are failed on server-restart (ie work in neither)
