Is it possible to use 3TB HDD's (as Western Digital WD30EZRSDTL or Hitachi HDS723030ALA640) on the RMS2AF080 SAS-Raid Controller? Is it possible to setup a Raid-5 Array on the S3420GPLX?
Intel has not validated any 3TB HDDs on the RMS2AF080 RAID module. See the Intel® Integrated RAID Module RMS2AF040/RMS2AF080 Tested Hardware and Operating System List for current validation details.
You'll also see there that the S3420GPLX / S3420GPRX server boards were tested with the RMS2AF080 RAID module.
RAID 5 is supported by the RMS2AF080 RAID module see the Intel® RAID software user's guide for details on how to configure and maintain RAID arrays.
We are a channel partner and I need to ask you some questions about the RMS2AF080 we are having problems with, can i get direct email, chat or phone to contact you please.
I think it best to contact our support center to provide proper support and issue tracking if needed.
