We have an R710 server with Perc H700 Raid controller and 3-1/2" Near-line SAS 6Gps hard drives. We are looking to upgrade the aging hard drives with SSDs, and would like info on which SSDs are compatible with this system. Service Tag for this system is: HMHVPQ1.
Solved! Go to Solution.
What about SATA SSD, is there any?
Like Kingston suggests DC400 to be compatible with PowerEdge R710, sizes: 480GB, 960GB, 1600GB?
I have a new setup with Kingstone DC400 960GB SEDC400S37 drives installed on a R710 with H700 card.
All drives are showing "non-critical" state.
OMSA and H700 versions are at the latest.
Any ideas how to resolve this?
Get certified drives. Non-certified drives may not properly communicate their status, so the controller cannot vouch that they are healthy.
The state currently showing is the yellow exclamation and "non-critical": will I be alerted should one of the drives fail? or is this the only state with a non-compatible drive?
edit: pulling a drive out does show a notification on the hardware status monitoring.
so, when using a non-compatible driver, what are the effects?
