This story finally continues. I just bought a Western Digital 4 TB external disk. It wasn't split up into two logical drives, and the old Debian server in question supports it just fine. So I think the statements about motherboards should be 'some motherboards don't support USB-to-SATA controllers with this logical splitting functionality. Buy other disk'.

There's no universal way to tell this before buying a drive as it is not a specification that anyone ever lists explicitly. However, the general rule, and reasoning is as follows: All standard USB drives will be standard block devices. Any USB mass-storage (block) device should work for passthrough. The only exceptions are where USB drives have proprietary ...

Most of that product line has two PCIe slots. That's your expansion option for the platform. If you don't have any free PCIe slots, then you don't have any options to accommodate this ...

Current USB over IP implementations supports only USB 2.0 speed, and in my opinion isn't very fast and reliable. If you need a robust way to connect HDDs over network, you should look for some SAN (provides block storage)/NAS instead (provides network filesystem), depending on your needs. Most SAN and NAS hardware comes with hot-swap bays.
