Solution if the controller is faulty due to a VRD chip defect of the S2600 storage system:
1. Symptom
The controller network is disconnected and the user cannot log in to the controller.
The controller becomes offline due to a VRD chip defect of the S2600 storage system. As a result, the controller network is disconnected and the user cannot log in to the controller. It can be observed on site that if a network port is properly connected, the indicator on the upper-right is on and other indicators are off.
2. Solution
Replace the controller.

Whether the S5000/S2600 storage system with only one power supply can be normally started after the power supply is faulty
For the S5000 storage system, if the only one power supply fails, the system cannot start up. Because when the power supply is faulty, the system cannot control the discharging of the battery through the power supply. As a result, the battery cannot work properly. From the perspective of security, the system does not allow the storage system to start. For the S2600 storage system, if the only one power supply fails, the system can still start up. Because the discharge of the BBU in the S2600 storage system is irrelevant to the power supply.

Whether disk intermixing is supported by S5000/S2600 storage systems
Whether disk intermixing is supported by S5000/S2600 storage systems: Yes. S2600 storage systems support the intermixing of SAS and SATA disks. However, the intermixing of coffer disks and disks in the same RAID group is not supported. The S5000 supports the intermixing of Fibre Channel disks, SATA disks, and SSDs within or across controller enclosures or disk enclosures. Note: It is recommended that Fibre Channel disks or SSDs be used for coffer disks for S5600 storage systems. If SATA disks are used as coffer disks for S5600 storage systems, data loss may occur in the case of unexpected power failures. The intermixing of the other 20 disks is supported. That is, Fibre Channel disks, SATA disks, or SSDs can be configured.
