Support for the EAEU 8TB drive and Libre 8TB drive in Oracle Database Appliance X5-2

(Doc ID 2360247.1)

Last updated on APRIL 26, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Database Appliance X5-2 - Version All Versions to All Versions [Release All Releases]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
As of ODA Software bundle 12.2.1.2.0, there is no support for the EAEU 8TB drive pn:7352214.
However, for the Libre 8TB drive, pn 7334977, there is support, so nothing special needs to be done for 7334977, if they are running 12.2.1.2.0 or above.

This doc provides a workaround for using the EAEU 8TB drive pn 7352214, until there is an official ODA software release that has built-in support for this drive model.

Goal

 If you need to order the  8TB 7200 RPM SAS-3 Disk Drive Assembly without Encryption (part number 7352214, model H7280B524SUN8.0T), you need to modify the validation_props.xml file, in order for the ODA to support that drive.

Again, there is support for the Libre 8TB drive, pn 7334977 in 12.2.1.2.0, so nothing special needs to be done for pn 7334977, if they are running 12.2.1.2.0 or above.
