BSAS stands for Bridged SAS.
When you see that on a NetApp system it means you have SATA disks in a SAS enclosure.
Based on current product offerings this would be a DS4243 disk shelf.
Are you seeing both BSAS and SAS disk types in the same aggregate?
I didn’t think that was possible.

Im not that familiar with netapp. I only know the basics. Anyway I was reading on this forum below:
and you asked "Are you seeing both BSAS and SAS disk types in the same aggregate?"
I do see this and i was trying to figure out which Netapp has what. I was told one has Sata (BSAS) and another has SAS. I see both types in both Netapps. Why is this? Also would you know or know of any documentation on how to learn your current Netapp configuration. What i mean by that is how they are connected to the network and to eachother? these netapps are stored in a Data Center hundreds of miles away. I understand these might be stupid questions but i figure i can learn more about SAN storage. I ve attached screenshots of each netapp.
