Compatibility beetween FWD Disk Drive and FW SCSI interface

We have a R380 server running HP-UX 10.2 with a GSC Fast/Wide SCSI interface card

Can I connect a HPA5286A FWD Disk Drive to this server ?

yes, this is a low profile FWD hot-plug disk for use in the A3312A HASS system (Jamaica).

the HASS can be connected to a GSC or HSC FWD SCSI card.

Bernhard is correct, however, you can also put this drive in your hotplug internal drive slots.
What are the chances...

Actually no, you can't put a A5286A FWD hot swap drive into the R class servers. You can put the A5286A internal into the D class servers. The 18GB internal drive you need for the R class servers are the A5789A 18GB single ended fixed disk and these are not a hot swap disk drive.

My mistake, I misread the message, I thought it was about a D380. Jesse is correct, the A5286A cannot go internal on an R-class
