Equallogic ps6000

I have a PS6000xv storage with 8 2TB SATA disks all from the same WD model.

But I can not find more disks of this model, I can replace another disk of qq to mark with the same characteristics, 2 TB, SATA same speed without problems?

Thank you

Re: Equallogic ps6000

Hello,

  The drives for the EQL arrays are made especially for them by the drive MFR.  A standard OEM drive is not going to work. You would have to find used EQL drives from a 3rd party vendor.  There's also no way to update an OEM drive to EQL supportability either.

 Regards,

Don

Re: Equallogic ps6000

Thanks for the feedback, but I no longer use EQL drivers I use OEM WD disks already for 2 years, but now one has failed but it did not find the same template and tag, so the question is if I can change it to another disk with the same characteristics more than other brand or model understood?

Thank you

Re: Equallogic ps6000

Hello,

 That isn't something I can advise you on since it's not supported.  Using random disks can have very unpredictable results.  Including potential for data loss.
