I have an older host running ESXI 5.5 U3 on a PowerEdge T430 and I need to build another RAID10 volume with the Perc 730 controller. My question is regarding 512n support with this older version of ESXI. I know that 512e and 4Kn drives are not supported with ESXI 5.5 but need to know if 512n drives will work fine. I presume they do as the logical and physical sector size is 512 on 512n drives.
Thanks for any input.
vSphere/vSAN 6.0 and earlier versions have not been designed to use 4Kn/512e direct-attached disk drives. 512e drives are supported only in version 6.5 and later
