[1] The DS4246 disk shelf only supports high-capacity disk configurations and "Mixed Shelf" SSD configurations that combine SSDs with high-capacity disk drives.

[3]NSE relies on the drive manufacturer for assurance-level certification. Self-encrypting drives (SEDs) used with NetApp® Storage. Encryption (NSE) cannot be mixed with non-encrypting HDDs in the same storage system. SnapLock and MetroCluster are not supported with NSE.

Data ONTAP® Support
See the Disk Drive & Firmware Matrix on the NetApp Support site for the most up to date information on which ONTAP software version is needed to support each disk type.
