AaronConnect With a Mentor Systems Administrator & DSTCommented:
The largest drives this server will support is 2TB. This is due to the controller and not the system itself.
PowerEdgeTechConnect With a Mentor IT ConsultantCommented:
It is the controller that provides the support NOT the server. The PERC 6/i supports a maximum of 2TB drives. With an H700, the 2900 will take +2TB drives. (The H700 is not officially supported in a 2900, but many have reported it to work.)
