Hope someone may have an idea or two with this issue. Recently, I went ahead and bought several SAS HDD's ( NETAPP X412_HKCBF560A15 ) from Ebay which I then connected to my ARC-1883IX RAID controller via mini SAS SFF-8643 to (4) 29pin SFF-8482 cables. When I power on my server the...
Recently got some 4TB Oracle-Branded HGST drives with the hopes of using them in my storage array, but it appears they must have some kind of custom firmware that prevents them from being used outside of Oracle systems. The drives show up fine on my proxmox host, but the drives seem...
I've got several HGST Ultrastar HUSMM1616ASS200/HUSMM1616ASS204 that I bought as a bundle. I thought they were identical (except for the minor difference in encryption bits (the 4 vs 0), which I don't care about ... yet).
However, they fall into two groups:

I am hoping someone could help me understand what's going on. I have two HGST HUS726060ALN610 6TB 4kn drives and I'm trying to create a btrfs raid1 (in Ubuntu 22.04).

Any idea if there is a firmware update? I would like to update just in case and maybe to solve the overheating issue.
P.S. Also this HDD is getting 56 degrees hot under write, its bare outside with esata.
I moved to more modern drives and they dont get as hot, I have one x16 14tb on top...
I just ran a 'badblocks' command over some of my old HGST 3TB platters I exchanged recently here overnight. It appears to me a drive just died tonight during the testing as it wrote an 11.6G output file of bad blocks and can't be accessed anymore.
I tested the drive on Thursday last week with...
Hello, I have 2 HGST HUS724040ALS640 drives and I want to flash them with the A280 firmware. I bought them from an online seller and I don't know where they came from. Currently both of them are reporting to be Hitachi DKW2E-H4R0SS.
I'm a noob in hdd firmware flashing, never did it before, so I...
Wondering if anyone knows if there's a good way to get hard drive statistics from HGST SAS drives using mpt3sas driver. I didn't realize until recently SAS doesn't report statistics for smartmontools, so I was scanning them with smartctl trying to figure out why I couldn't get stats like...
Has anyone bought some of these?
If so, how much life is left?
Another auction here for $221 obo...

I got these four drives off of ebay, sold as "new", at a good price, $139, for this seller: deals2day-364.
Now, I didn't expect them to be new, but I didn't expect the drives to have 20k power-on hours either. The fact that they are sold as "new" when they have even more hours than the...

2. Seagate ST8000NM0065 8TB 7200RPM 3.5IN 4KN SAS-12GBPS...

After scouring the internet I finally found the HGST drive manager software.
Note that for working on windows, it requires a driver I have yet to find, but linux binaries are included too.
Selling a (cold spare) drive that has been sitting on the shelf for going on 1 year. We are moving to larger 16TB drives, so my raid is being set to our test environment. (Might post the old old raid 4-8TB drives soon or the whole ESXi server). The drive was used in the original setup and may...
