Max Hard Disk capacity supported in rp2470

Hi,

I need to upgrade my Hard Disk in rp2470 server. Any idea what is the max Hard disk size available to purchase if I need to install it as an internal Hot Plug disk? Has anyone installed a 146GB internal drive in rp24xx? If so, what part number?

Thanks & Best Regards,
Abdul Salam

Hello Abdul,
Robert-Jan is right : 146GB is the max internal disk capacity.
I've god 2x73 and it works wery well.

Just for information, needing now more capacity for backup, i just buy the MSA-30 external bay, with 3 (max: 14 !!) 146GB disks.

They say "install windows 2k, xp or better", so i install unix !

Hello,

I have already got 2 * 73GB working fine in another rp2470. Just needed to know whether I can upgrade to 2 * 146GB as internal Hot Plug disks.
Anyways, thanks for the info regarding the MSA. I can suggest it for some other servers needing relatively larger space.

Thanks & Regards,

Hi Abdul,

if you want the cheap solution, the msa30
is better. The price of msa30 with 2x146GB HDDs is equal to price of one A7075A 146GB HDD for rp24xx.

msa30 spec:
1 x 302969-B21 HP Storageworks MSA 30 SB Storage
2 x 286716-B22 HP 146GB 10K U320 Pluggable Hard Drive
