MIxing drive sizes/types in VA7410?

My customer currently has 73GB drives in his VA7410. He would like to add 146GB drives to this configuration. Is this allowed? Also, can he mix drive speeds as well?

Re: MIxing drive sizes/types in VA7410?

I wouldn't mix drive speeds.

You probably could put in 146GB drives, but be aware that if you have active hot spare turned on, you will have to have as much space per RG as the largest drive.

I prefer to keep everything with the same size and speed drives myself.
