Hi Dan,

     Refer to EMC Parts Compatibility Database web site  for checking compatibility of different parts with different hardware models and code levels. This site gives link to ALL_VNX_CLARiiON_Celerra_Disk_OE_Matrices which lists drives compatibility with different Clariion/ VNX models and FLARE versions.

Oh, i wish.  This is well out of maintenance, otherwise i'd never be putting drives outside of EMC's channel.

Hello,

Although this topic is old, I have the same question.

Is is possible to reformat the DMX disks in order to be supported by the Clariion storage system?

As far as I understood the DMX-3/DMX-4 disks have 512bytes/sector disk geometry while the Clariion ones have 520bytes/sector. If the disk geometry for a DMX disk is changed to 520byes/sector using a Linux/UNIX machine, are there any chances that the disk to be recognized by Clariion?

Regards,

Raul

Probably not - there is more to formatting the disk to 520 bytes per sector, it would also need the specific VNX/CLARiiON firmware - check the OE Flare Matrix to be sure.
