HP Hard Disk Compatibility
Posted on 2015-02-07
I've run into an issue doing an update to a Hp Proliant ML350G6. I suspect the supplier has advised me the incorrect part number for the hard disks, and it appears the drives i have to hand are for a Gen 8 & 9 server.
The drives i have here are Part Number 652583-B21HP 600GB 6G SAS 10K 2.5in SC E NT HDD. From what i've found online it appears i may actually require Part Number 581286-B21 HP 600GB 6G SAS 10K 2.5in DP ENT HDD.
Does anyone know if its possible to use the newer drives in the older G6 model server - maybe a firmware update for the storage controller? It's running a Smart Aray P420i controller.
