perc6/e does support 32 HDDs per RAID10 

MD3000 (2nd Generation FW) does support 44 HDDs per RAID10


BUT you shouldn't use Perc to connect MD3000!!! 

you MUST use a SAS HBA.

Hi folks


on an MD3000 can anyone tell me the max number of disks we could have in
a RAID1+0 set when the MD3000 is attached via a PERC6/E ?


Many thanks
