Is it possible to mix SSDs of same capacity but with different form factors in the same FlashPool?
Suppose, we have DS2246 and DS4246 both containing 400GB SSDs and we are creating a FlashPool with some SSDs from DS2246 and some from DS4246.
Is this supported?
Also, can we assing one of the SSDs from DS4246 as a spare for the 2.5" SSDs?

Refer table 1 on page 3
Flash Pool support Mixed shelf SSDs + HDDs: DS2246, DS4246
Refer table 2 on page 4 Flash Pool also works in “shelf-to-shelf” configurations in which SSDs from a pure SSD shelf are combined into an aggregate with HDDs from other shelves
