The SROMBSASMR RAID module uses the LSI* 1078 SAS ROC Controller, which doesn't support hard drives greater than 2TB. It's highly recommended that you select hard drives from the Tested hardware and operating system list.
I should have dug deeper up front and found that compatibility list.
Many of the newer 2TB Enterprise disks have a SATAIII interface and not a SATAII.
I believe that SATAIII is backwards compatible... is this the case or will I have problems trying to run a SATAIII disk?
Also, I assume the controller will be fine working with different brands, provided the Size and Cache match. ie, Seagate 2TB w/64mb & Hitachi 2TB w/64mb.
This is the disk I've identified as available form the suppliers, but its got a 6GB/s SAS interface, not a 3?
There are SAS 6.0GB/s listed on the support list, but not this model.
However, it is at the 2TB limit.... can I assume it should work?
Hi and thanks again for your help.
I can confirm that the Seagate model ST2000NM0001 works fine with the controller.
This is the CONSTELLATION ES ST2000NM0001 7200RPM SAS
I've attached the product info for anyone interested.
