ML370 Max HD size

I have an ML370 with a 5304/256 array controller.

What is the maximum disk size i can use with this ? - I am only adding disks to the internal connector.

Thanks

Re: ML370 Max HD size

If you have ML370 G1 then your max HDD is this:
72.8-GB Wide Ultra3 SCSI 10,000 rpm Drive [232432-B22]

Rgds.

G2 or better, you can probably put in 300GB drives without any issues.

Thanks all. As my ML370 is Compaq branded and beige in colour with 2x1GHz processors, I think that makes it a G1. So 70GB drives it is on that array controller.

You can use 300 Gb without any problem

Re: ML370 Max HD size

So I am now intruiged. The onboard controller will support up to 72GB drives but the array controller will support the 300GB drives - good.

I've found this part number - is that correct?
350964-B22

It is a HP 300GB U320 scsi disk. Should any U320 disk work then?

Thanks

Re: ML370 Max HD size

Anthony,

I am pretty sure you can use 300 Gb drives for onboard SCSI controller as well.
Just ML370 G1 specifications not updated when new SCSI drives launched

P.S. Since you are new on this forum read:

Re: ML370 Max HD size

And yes, 350964-B22 is correct part number for 300 Gb U320 SCSI drive.
Of course it will work as Ultra3 and not U320 because SmartArray 5300 doesn't support U320
