Hello,

2 years ago I bough from ebay quite lots of 7000 series 3par ssd drives (DOPA0920S5xnNMRI) what I have used on linux serves (formatted to 512 byte sectors). Now after I bought 8400 storeserv to our production, I'm really happy with it and I can take linux servers with ssd's out from production.

I wish to have 3par in my lab too and have lots of 7000 series ssd's. I asked offer of 8200 2-node with all inclusive licenses and minimal hdd setup, cheapest drives, without a support and "self installing". Price is OK. Now I'm wondering that if I take those cheap drives out of it, can I use these 7000 series ssd disks on it? These ssd's are sas2, 8200 is sas3 but I think that it can support sas2 too. Software would be 3.2.2 MU4.

I understand that there is really no HPE support with this kind of setup, but it's same if I buy some used 7000 series from ebay, but with them is not easy to get all needed licenses.

Does anybody ever tried to 8000 series recognize 7000 series disks?

If they are laying around just toss them in and see how it responds...

While that may be completely unsupported, picking up used 8000 series drives and adding them in would be another road which should have less issues....support is still another issue.
