Hi, Anybody know how to format a SAS disk with 512 or 520 byte per sector? I didn't find this feature in the SAS software in the format function.

I can't help with how to do this via PC-3000 SAS (since I don't own one). However, you can easily do this in Linux using SG3-utils

sudo apt-get install sg3-utils
sudo sg_format --format --size=520 (or size=512 to do the opposite)


Return to “PC-3000 SAS”
