Dell EMC PowerEdge R540 with Seagate Enterprise NAS HDD

Hello everyone,

I'm curious about the Dell EMC PowerEdge R540. I want to setup an archive server with "slow" but high capacity.

Is it possible to connect Seagate Enterprise Capacity 3.5 12 TB (ST12000NM0007) to the Dell PERC H730P+ ?

I wouldn't. They might work, but they might not. Non-certified drives can be hit/miss, but NAS drives are a poor choice for servers. Only use them if the data/services the server provides is not critical.
