Will 16TB drives work in R730 with S130?

Our current configuration has 4 x 4TB 7.2K SATA 3.5inch drives installed in a R730 with S130. There are an additional 4 open drive slots on the server. I would like to put 4 x 16TB 7.2K SATA drives into these open slots and then create a new separate virtual disk with these drives. 

Will this work? Are there any limitations I need to be aware of?

Hi,

 

Ideally it should not be a problem, as there is no limitation to S130 nor the server, only the OS dependent support for drive size. But at times, I have faced many users use non-Dell firmware drives; and it may occur errors like OMSA reports or unable to detect the drives.
