TS-251A Wd gold 6tb

Post by overjet » Mon Aug 10, 2020 1:36 pm

Hi to all,

my second wd red 6tb, on my ts-251a in raid 1, it's broken.

I would like to change with a WD gold 6tb, WD6003FRYZ, but it is not in the compatibility list.

For you is it compatible also if it is not present in compatibility list ?!?

Thanks a lot.

not sure what your question meant ..but it should be fine for a swap

make sure you have full external backups at all times

Thanks a lot for reply.

I've checked compatibility list of 419p+ and the WD gold are in the compatibility list. My problem is the wd gold are not in compatibility list of my TS-251A.

I've already backup of all my data.

Ok, i've installed the new wd gold 6tb. The hardisk was detected correctly.

The reconstruction of raid 1 has restarted.

So i believe the hardisk is supported correctly by the ts-251A.
