What I need to find out is the Max Storage Capacity on this Server

the spec sheet says 6Tb But im wondering if thats on the internal Ide channels

or the H700 Raid Controller as I want to expand its capacity using larger drives

The H700 supports drives larger than 2TB. The R815 should also support UEFI boot mode, allowing you to boot from virtual disks or drives larger than 2TB. Drive sizes are much larger now than what was available when we were selling the R815. Your capacity will likely be limited by the number of drive connectors or slots available. You can find more information about the controller and system specifications in their documentation.

Just note that drives must support 512e to work on the H700 (I don't think 4kn will work at all).
