Diferent Hard Drives

I have a Proliant DL380 G2, and one of the Hard drives just fail. Can i change a 36.4 Gb 10K Ultra3 Scsi with a 36.4 15K U320 Scsi?

Or do i have to keep the same size, speed and interface?

 

This is a PIII 1.4 Mhz 1.5M Ram hot swap with Windows 2000 SP4 Raid 5

 

Thanks!

Are all the other drives 36.4Gb 10k?
Should work fine with the 15k drive, it might be hard to find 10k drives now.

Hi there,

 

Make sure you have latest system bios and controller firmware.

 

it should work fine if controller recognises the drive and rebuild the logical drive. however, Ultra320 drive will work at ultra3 speed.

 

thanks,

Aftab

Re: Diferent Hard Drives

Thanks, but i have another question.

The fact that i have a Smart Array 5i Controller will let me use a ultra320 hard drive?

 

Thanks again

Sounds like the quickspecs of the 5i can be of assistance: http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/10890_na/10890_na.HTML

Hi there,

 

HP Smart Array 5i is wide Ultra3 (ultra160) controller. however, Ultra320 technology is backward compatible and you should be able to use it on ultra3 controller.

 

quickspecs wil give you more details on smart array 5i controller.

 

thanks,

Aftab
