how to check warranty on HDD?Open in a New Window

so, I have a hdd that is reported as broken (300GB 15k SAS HP P/N 627114-002)

so, I try to check for warranty here (http://h20564.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/wc/public/find),

and it asks for a Serial Number and a Part Number, but the problem is that the hard drive has like 2+ different serial numbers, and 6 different part numbers printed on it...

where exactly do I find the Product number and the serial number I need?

I am currently in one contry, but how do I know what country the hdd comes from?

The fairy tale of "under-data" - or how to erase disk data securelyOpen in a New Window

Many people think that data on a hard disk can only be securely destroyed by physical destruction of the disk itself. Many people also think that it is necessary to overwrite disk data multiple times to avoid any detection of remaining data fragments.
These fragments are sometimes called "under-data" and the theory says it is possible that at the very edge of the data tracks some overshoots of old data could remain after overwriting. This is explained by mechanical tolerances of the record heads relative to the magnetic tracks.
Source of this theory is a paper from Peter Gutmann from 1996:
http://www.cs.auckland.ac.nz/~pgut001/pubs/secure_del.html

In this paper he suggests to overwrite a disk up to 35 times to make sure that all the under-data has been overwritten too. He also explains that with the aid of a Magnetic Force Microscope (MFM) it was possible to scan the disk surface and recover under-data.

I have personally investigated this MFM application and it turned out that a full scan of one disk surface would take about one year! Even a "high speed" MFM needs several hours to scan a 100x100 micrometer area...

To make it worse, what you receive from that MFM scan is a huge picture of magnetic fields and structures. This picture is about 100 times bigger than the amount of data on the diks surface.
For a 1TB disk drive a 100TB big picture will be crated. Someone will then have to interpret that picture to find all the 0's and 1's on it.... And if it is really possible to recognise under-data correctly is still in question.

Daniel Feenberg has analyzed the Gutmann paper and found that most information in there is purely theoretical:
http://www.nber.org/sys-admin/overwritten-data-guttman.html

If you read those two papers carefully (especially the second one) you will find that one time overwriting is totally sufficient!

And finally forensic experts have analyzed the issue and came the the same conclusions:

1 TB SAS HP MB1000FAMYUOpen in a New Window

Would anyone know where to find more detailed specifications for the HDD mentioned in the subject line?

What I would like to know in particular:

When where these drives manufactured (year)?

How do they compare to typcial 1 TB SATA drives regarding noise and vibration?

I'm planning to use 4 such drives in a Mac Pro with a SATA/SAS controller (Areca 1212) and have good offer.

Thanks!

 

 

 

Suspicous 6TB Hard DrivesOpen in a New Window

I received 10 6TB hard drives from a supplier.  All the serial numbers end in an "R".  Really weird. So I checked the usage time in HP intelligent provisioning, insight diagnostics and there wasn't any.  Should I be worried that these are not brand new drives?  Do you think they might be refurbished?

TIA,

Susan

 

Raid-compatibility of HDD with different modelOpen in a New Window

Hello. We have old HP ML150 G6 with two SATA disks (ATA MB1000EBZQB) in RAID. One disk is going to die and we ordered new disk with P/N:  454146-B21. But new disk's model is MB1000EAMZE. So question is: are these disks similar. Will they be raid-compatible?

 

HP EH0300FBQDD SAS DRIVESOpen in a New Window

Purchased (8) EH0300FBQDD 15k drives from Amazon to upgrade a RAID 1+0 array on P420 controller. The drives and trays look legit and have the proper hologram label on them but can not get them to accept HPD5 firmware update. I have attempted with both Smart Update disk and individual downloaded installers. The installers state that the update was succesful but P420 SSA still reports the drives as version HPD1.

Did I purchase counterfeit drives?

 

Replacing smaller drive with larger drive in RAID: Is it automatically short-stroked?Open in a New Window

Curious as to whether a particular disk drive gets short-stroked automatically if for example, we replace a 750GB disk with a 1TB disk in a raid array.  I am under the assumption that the controller will begin the rebuild at the outermost tracks, and stop when it gets to the 750GB mark, therefore not utilizing the innermost, slowest disk sectors and effectively short-stroking this disk, making it just a bit faster.  Is this the case?  Does it work with most storage systems this way natively?  Is there any reason this wouldn't happen in the way I described?

Thanks!

 

Failed firmware upgradeOpen in a New Window

Dear all,

I recently bought three HP 72GB 6G SAS 15K SFF DP 2.5" (DH0072FAQRD) disks.

As they have firmware HPDF I'm trying to upgrade them to version HPDJ.

 

Unfortunately the upgrade fail with an "Error when building Halon object" message (see attached logs).

I tried several things/methods, including:

  • booting from HP Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) versions 2015.06.0 and 2015.10.0
  • using the HP Service Pack for ProLiant (SPP) versions 2015.06.0 and 2015.10.0 from inside Windows
  • using the downloaded upgrade file cp024970.exe
  • moving the disk to three different servers

 

Any idea?

One part number, but different disks' model.Open in a New Window

Hello.  Recently we've got 12 HP 300G SAS 15k disks with pn - 652611-B21.  9 of them are EH0300FCBVC, but 3 are EH0300FBQDD. Is this situation OK? And now bothering about compatibility between this disks in one raid array. Should I re-build arrays until it was too late?

 

HP ioDrive2 (Fusion IO flash card) with Redhat Enterprise Linux 7.1 (RHEL 7)Open in a New Window

Hello

 

I have an HP branded ioDrive 2 (Fusion ID flash card) / 673644-B21 and wish to use it with RHEL 7

 

 

Checking the Sandisk website (who now own Fusion IO) I see that there are drivers available for RHEL7.  However the HP website shows only drivers for RHEL6.

 

Will an updated driver be made available by HP?  If not could I use the Sandisk driver and will it work?  Would I be fully supported if so and would the monitoring software also work?

 

Kind regards,

 

James

 

Smart Storage Administrator warning about Disk FirmwareOpen in a New Window

Hi,

 

I have a Proliant ProLiant DL360 G6 which had a faulty disk lately. The server is out of guarantee and i had to order spare disks without hp support.

 

The disks used were of the "HP DG0300FAMWN" type with firmware HPDE.

 

The spare disks I used to rebuild the raid are of the "HP EG0300FCSPH" type with the firmware HPD0.

 

Now Storage Administrator is critisising that the disk should at least have firmware HPDE - but for the  spare disk the latest firmware release is HPD0.

 

 

So obviously there are two types of hp disks in the raid, but the disks have the same specs, so there should be no real problem whatsoever.

 

But what to do with the firmware warning? What are my options?

 

Any ideas and thoughts appreciated!

 

Thank you very much in advance.

 

 

Bye,

Tim

 

VSAN HCL compatibility HP SSD 691851-001Open in a New Window

I have a number of INTEL SSD DC S3700 800GB SSDs that I want to use with VSAN

 

The HP part code for these is 691851-001 (or 691842-004) as both numbers are referenced on the drives as well as the Intel part number SSDSC2BA800G3P

 

I have checked both the Intel and HP part numbers on the VMWare website using the compatibility matrix but neither appeared as compatible

 

http://www.vmware.com/resources/compatibility/search.php?deviceCategory=ssd&productid=37418&deviceCategory=ssd&details=1&vsan_type=vsanssd&ssd_partner=41&ssd_releases=273&vsanrncomp=true&page=1&display_interval=10&sortColumn=Partner&sortOrder=Asc

 

I initially contacted Intel for help abut adding these drives to the list as their part code SSDSC2BA800G3 is shown as compatible but they replied stating the drive is compatible with VSAN but HP would need to have it  added as it is officially a HP part

 

Please advise where I need to contact to have them added

 

Thank you in advance for yor help as I am anxious to get VSAN up and running ASAP

SmartSSD Wear Gauge Utility - not finding the HP IO Duo SSD DrivesOpen in a New Window

HI, 

I have a box in a data center that has 4 HP IO Drives that are Solid State Drives.  I would like to measure the wear on the SSDs to find out how much life is left on them.  They are 3 years old.  I had the datacenter install the SmartSSD Wear Gauge Utility.  The utility runs fine but does not find the SSDs.   I submitted a ticket to HP support but they have not got around to responding. Suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

72GB SAS disk with different sizes???Open in a New Window

I have here 2 disks (389346-001, 72GB, SAS, DualPort, 10k, 2.5"), both with identical spare partnumber. When plugged into the disk shelf attached to an p400 controller, one has a physical size of 73.4GB and the other has 73.5GB...

 

Unfortunately we have a productive RAID array which was set up with all 73.5GB drives. Now we got the smaller drives as a replacement and of course that does not work. Of course we can use 146GB or bigger drives but...

 

Did someone experience the same issue with those "72"GB drives?

Why does HP have identical disks with different sizes?

 

As a consequence of this, I will have to check all our drives in stock what actual size they have. Or we have to scrap all our 72GB drives since we don't know which is which.

 

This is a bit frustrating.... any reactions from HP, please?

Hi evrybody!

This is my first visit on this forum. Sorry for my English.

I have a one question. My computer is HP7900 ultra slim desktop. Very nice, small and quaiet machine (C2D E8600 3.33 GHz and 4GB ram and 250 GB HDD. Windows 8.1 works quickly and smooth on this model. I want to upgrade additional not expensive 32 or 64 GB SSD disk to the system. Is this ssd disk http://www.aliexpress.com/item/Mini-PCIE-SATA-3cmX5cm-OR-3cm-X-7cm-SSD-Hard-Drive-Solid-State-Drive-Disk-4GB/504023353.html can work with this model HP?? HP7900 ultra slim has Mini PCIe slot onboard for solid state drive. This is link for my HP7900 illustrated parts and service map. http://www.google.pl/url?url=http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01563115.pdf&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&sa=U&ei=G2gsVI7HB8b9ygPm34H4Aw&ved=0CB8QFjAF&usg=AFQjCNEZ5nz1KDoOG_pA4Hb9_trlgRdQ9Q
I will be happy if my Windows and some special programs run much faster! I know that Mini PCIe ssd is not the same as mSATA ssd disk. Both looks similar but are not compatible. I'am looking for Mini PCIe SSD disk.

 

Thanks for help or advice.

part number 539613-001Open in a New Window

I am physically holding in my hand an HP hard drive, p/n on both the handle and the disk itself is 539613-001. It is a 2.5" SAS disk, and appears to be the same as a 512744-001, but it isn't anywhere on partsurfer nor the HP disk drive matrix. 

 

Where can I find info pertaining to this disk?  We ordered the part number 512744-001 from an HP var, but received these instead and can find no info on them.  They'd be fine for our purposes since the specs all match, but we've had issues in the past with customers balking at the exact part number (they are looking for 512744-001) not being physically on the drive/drive carrier.

Thanks for any assistance!
