looking for HP 10K-RPM FC 146GB disk drives

Dear Fellas,

I have HSV110 V6.0.2 connected to SD32000 and npars are running hpux 11v1.

I need a few either 72GB or 146GB hard drives for SAN to add more space but I could not find disks anywhere on HP.

If you folks know any HP or reseller site selling them, please post the link.

Thanks

Have you also looked for 15K drives? 293568-B22 and 364621-B22.

10K drives are being phased-out and are no longer on sale and even scarce as spares.

This due to all manufacturers ceasing the production of 10K drives.

vcespon,

My servers are reaching end of life at year's end. Using 15K RPM disks may require me to upgrade SAN firmware and I was trying to avoid firmware upgrade to minmize any possible corruption to existing disks and data.

For an EVA5000 the only possible firmwares right now are 3.110 (Active/Passive) or 4.100 (Active/Active). Anything else is not supported.

Anyway, older firmwares like 3.028 support some 15K drives too. Check the release notes of your current firmware.

FYI..

It is not an easy solution so I have contacted Fed SI Alliance Team at HP.

Thanks
