Different disks in a sc10/fc60

Hi all,
WE have a fc60 with three sc10. Complete full with 72GB disks.
Now one disk fails, but I've a 36GB disk available.
Is it possible to mix disks?

Greetings Lars

hi lars,

NO, you cannot replace with a smaller disk as the array would not be able to rebuild properly and would fail.

you need a disk the same size or larger. however if you used a larger one you wouldnt be able to use the extra capacity, only the 72gb of it.

Hi lars,

FC60 works with hardware raid, within a raid group al the device must have the same capacity, for more info see
