Switching to DE with Opal support


We are planning to start using the DE with disk that support the Opal standards. What is the easiest way to check the drive support Opal and is compatible with the latest DE software? Also, is there a way to check the compatibility on multiple machines as once?

ePO version used is 5.9.1
DE version

Many thanks.

Re: Switching to DE with Opal support

YMMV, but we've stopped using Opal encryption and went strictly software encryption after multiple issues, or maybe just bad luck. M.2 type drives that were "compatible" but really weren't - weeks of troubleshooting with Enterprise support and no workaround was found except "Check with the manufacturer". Similar with corrupted all ends up being McAfee support can only go so far before the solution is "Check with the manufacturer".

Here's a list that seems to be updated regularly:
