Can I also work with only 4 SSDs and complete the remaining trays with SAS drives (4 SSD + 20 SAS config) or is mandatory to use 7 SSD/17 SAS to configure the array as RAID6 accelerated?
If you tried it, it would likely just add the SSDs to the spinning drives, then the SAS drives would be the size of the SSDs and you would end up with unpredictable results. I'm guessing that's what it would do without enough SSD drives
Thanks for your help Don, yes, I was reading some technical docs here that due to how an EQL Hybrid array works, the minimum SSD disks has to be 7 SSD drives for a correct raid6 accelerated array. At least, is good to know that I can convert it to a SAS only array, replacing the SSDs with spinning disks in the future.. turning it to a 6110X Array. Thanks in advance.
