Re: Disks for prolaint ML370

Which model?

G2, G3, G4, G5, G6?
(Well, probably not the G5 or G6 if you ask about Ultra320 disks)

Do you use Hotplug or non-hotplug disks?

But generally, I believe the largest Ultra320 disks are 300GB.

Ultra320 is 'old' tech now. It may be a good idea to look at something a bit newer.

How much space do you need?
What kind of controller do you have?

Re: Disks for prolaint ML370

The ML370 has been made in several 'Generations', where each 'Generation' denotes a certain level of technology. (Type of chipset, CPU, disk types it can accept and so on)
Therefore it can be nice to know which 'Generation' your server is.
(It's written as 'G1', 'G2' and so on)

Knowing this we can find the physical specifications, and read how many drive bays there are and so on.

How many disks is there room for, and how many of those slots are already occupied?

Are the disks 'hot-pluggable'?
(There's a handle that allows you to pull them out in the front. Non-hotplug disks are typically fastened with screws and stuff, and you need to manually disconnect cables)

Are you using the controller built into the motherboard, or is there a RAID-controller in the server?
