Does the SAS6i/R controller support disks larger than 2TB in a non-RAID mode?

If I have a PowerEdge R410 fitted with the SAS6i/R disk controller, can I fit disks larger than 2 terabytes and then either switch the controller to a pass-thru mode or configure each disk as single RAID 0 arrays with one physical disk per VD?

Alternatively, could a H700 controller be fitted in place of the SAS6i/R controller?

My apologies for the late reply but this was a generic inquiry while planning an upcoming project and did not relate to a specific R410, so I didn't respond with a service tag.

In the end, the project spec was revised and I used R610 servers fitted with H700 controllers, with the disks configured as single RAID 0 volumes.
