Compaq Proliant D380, Max Ultra 320 SCSI Disk size

Hi I was hoping someone can help answer a few questions.

I have a Compaq Proliant D380 server
with a separate disk array connected to it.

It currently has 7 disk in the array all
146.8 GB 10K Ultra320 SCSI.

My questions are

1) What is the Maximum Ultra320 SCSI disk I can get?

2) And Can I use mixed capacity disks in the SAN or will they all have to be 146.8GB?

The Array Controller is a "Smart array 5300"

Hi,

Depending upon the configuration (5304, 5302, etc..) up to 56 drives. The SA 5300 is Ultra3 not Ultra320, so you'll only get 160MB/s per channel according to the quick specs. The Ultra320 drives will work and "down-shift" to the controller's maximum throughput.

They also indicate that up to 300MB disk drives are _officially_ supported:

350964-B2 300GB 10,000 rpm, U320 Universal Hard Drive, 1"

Hope This Helps,
