Re: Add new drives

If they are compatible and are detected by controller you should not face any problems , the only problem that you may face is that hp controller will not track the paramateres for failure or any hard errors on the hard drive which means that no pre-failure notifications as the 3rd party hard drives are not hp modified. Also it is advisable to create a separate array with 3rd party hard drives and not mix it with hp drives. Hope this helps

Re: Add new drives

Will all the drives be 10K or 15K or mixed?  I usually don't recommend mixing hard drives in RAID.  It they are JBOD, they you just want to make sure they are all 6 Gbps to maintain controller performance.  the slowest drive sets controller speed.
