Does the 3ware 9690-SA support 3TB drives? Can I create a logical volume of 8x3TB drives in RAID5?

This question came from our site for system and network administrators.

See this knowledgebase article: It will work, you just need to update your firmware a bit.

The 3ware drive compatibility list does not contain any drives over 2TB in size. That is not to say they won't work - just that 3ware haven't tested them yet.

Thanks -- Do you happen to know if 3TB drives in general can be recognized by the 9690-SA? – ensnare Mar 10 '11 at 16:45
