Hello Community,. 

 

I have a HP Z800 with SAS drive bays, and came across a good deal on SAS drives, is HP Z800 compatible with 4KN SAS ?

 

10TB SAS Seagate ST10000NM0226 12GB 256MB 4KN SEC Server Enterprise Hard Drive

the z800 due to it's age has a hardware/bios limit on the boot drive,  it must be under 3TB for SATA and i believe under 4TB for the onboard LSI SAS controller

 

data drives have been tested up to 8TB on both SAS/SATA controllers and appear to work without issues, don't think anyone's tested 10TB sata/sas drives on the z800 so far as i know

 

i strongly recommend you skip the slow onboard LSI sas controller and instead get a Adaptec 6805T raid/JBOD controller off of ebay for around 30-50 dollars this controller will upgrade your SATA to sata 6GBps and SAS to 12GBps and will definitely support 10TB SAS as a Data drive just make sure the 6805T card comes with it's optional cache/batt backup module
