P400 Mixed dual/single port drives

Hi,

I have a failed drive in one ouf our servers. Nothing new there. However the only spares I have are dual port 146gb SAS drives and all the drives currently in the array are single port.

I am reasonably confident that I should be okay sticking the dual port drive in it's place but is anyone able to confirm this?

Yes it's fine to mix dual and single port drives with the P400. It will just use one port.

You can have a mix of two drives, it will work fine.
