Number of internal slots for D320? Need more space.

I need to patch two D320 servers and upgrade Service Guard. Current servers have two internal 4gb drives. I need more disk space in order to begin patching. Does the D320 have any more internal slots.

I'm running 11.0 and version 11.08 of Service Guard.

Thanks in advance... jack

A D320 should come with 5 internal hot-swap HVD disk slots, leaving You with 3 disks slots in each. maximum supported drive size is 18GB, as far as I know.

the newer disk sleds contain an HVD-SE converter, so if You're not bound to a support agreement and feel lucky, You could even try larger disks.

Jack - Florian is right. We've used larger hard drive formats ( Seagate 36G) with no problem on our D380/D390s which are no longer under support. You could probably even put larger drives. I know that our Ds have 5 internal hot-swap drive bays - but we've got 380s and 390s.

Al D3XX's have 5 hot-plug bays. You can install larger drives although if your firmware is very old you may need to upgrade it before larger drives can be used.
If it ain't broke, I can fix that.
