Dell PowerEdge R510 w/ Perc H700

Dell R510 - 8 Bay unit

H700 raid controller

4 x 146GB SAS drives

Raid 5 configuration

Windows 2008 R2

Currently have the a Raid 5 volume with separate OS and data partitions.

Need to know if I can add a separate Raid 5 volume on the H700 with larger Dell drives with a separate partitions.

What I would like to end up with is a second RAID 5 volume with 4 x 1 or 2 TB drives in the currently empty 4 bays.

Could someone comment if this is possible and also what is the largest Dell Certified drive for the H700.

Thanks!

Re: Dell PowerEdge R510 w/ Perc H700

Hello tiporter

what is the largest Dell Certified drive for the H700.

Firmware update 12.10.0 added support for drives larger than 2TB. It supports drives over 3TB in size: http://downloads.dell.com/FOLDER00431566M/1/SAS_RAID_Firmware_H700I_RELNOTES_12.10.4-0001_A10.txt

Yes you can. The limitations of the H700 far exceed the amount of hard drives you can install in this system: http://i.dell.com/sites/doccontent/shared-content/data-sheets/Documents/perc-technical-guidebook.pdf
