I have a FAS2040 running DataONTAP 8.1.4P1 in 7-Mode with a DS2246 diskshelf attached.
I've replaced one of the HDDs in the diskshelf - a 600GB, 10K 2.5" SAS disk.
The replacement disk is a Seagate - I've swapped it into the NetApp caddy.
However when I install it the filer reports it as being a SATA disk (not a SAS) disk.
I don't seem to be able to convince it otherwise, and in the absence of any better infomation I'm leaning towards a 'NetApp Hitachi' only situation.
I know there was a point in the recent history of DataONTAP when vendor agnostic drives came into play. I've been trying to determine when that point was without much luck (although there's been some great ancillary reading in there).
If anyone could provide any advice or assistance I'd be grateful.
