Compatibilty of Hard DIsk Drive & Modular Smart Array

Is HP 2TB 6G SATA 7.2K rpm LFF (3.5-inch) Part# 658079-B21 compatible with HP MSA 20 part# 335921-B21 ?

If the disk is not in the quickspecs - http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/11942_div/11942_div.html - it is not supported.

But is it compatible? 

 

See this old thread on the forum for some information:

Dear John,

 

thanks for the repy.

As you see, the quickspec pdf is old, even nowhere is mentioned that the unit does work with SATA 2TB by upgrading the firmware.

unfortunatley, there is lack of technical contribution in forum, I am still wandering about the issue.

 

thank you at all.
