M6625 + HP 900GB, 10k (619291-B21)?

Hi,

 

looking at the M6625 disk array enclosure, the "HP 600GB 6G SAS 10K rpm SFF (2.5-inch) Dual Port Hard Drive (AW611A)" is the maximum for an available 10k disk. Well, we also have a "HP  SFF Enterprise Drive 900GB, SAS 6Gb/s (619291-B21)" besides this, which is obviously a Seagate Savvio 10K.5 900GB drive.

(http://www.seagate.com/staticfiles/support/docs/manual/enterprise/savvio/10K.5/100628561d.pdf).

 

So, I read  the specification sheet and see no reason why this drive shouldn´t work in a M6625 drive? Perhaps someone knows more?

It is said that P6000 SAS disk drives have different firmware than ProLiant-branded disk drives. Maybe a 3rd-party drive 'works', but it is certainly 'unsupported' (means: if you've got a problem, you are on your own).

Are you serious with that different firmware?

My current EVA4400 has Seagate harddrives with a white HP label on it.

Once, I was looking for that harddrive firmware release on google. The firmware is standard on other systems, too. So, nothing special for anyone for that one...

I had this issue today and was given an answer by HP Storage Support.
