DL380 Raid 5 - Can I put a bigger disk in than I am taking out?


Raid 5 array with three drives, one of which has failed.

I am replacing the failed drive, a 72G disk. Can I use a 140G disk to replace it? I am not concerned if it does not use the full size of the drive.

Cheers,

Matt

Hi Matt
You can replace lower capacity hdd with higher capacity in Raid.
