Re: Max. hard drive size for DL380

Steve:

Keep in mind that the Quick Spec presented by Prashant is dated December 5th, 2001. 146GB and 300GB drives were not out at that point.

It is likely that with a firmware update to your Smart Array (maybe not even necessary), 146GB and 300GB drives would work without a problem.

What OS are you running on the box? and how uptodate is it with the Proliant Support Pack?

Re: Max. hard drive size for DL380

Hi guys,

Thanks for the pointers. If we can use 72G drives, that's more than enough for our current purposes. 146G and 300G would be overkill.

Thanks,

Re: Max. hard drive size for DL380

Yes we can add higher capacity drives too.
Problem comes when due o some reason we call HP for support then they say no and tell us, that is not supported.

But yes above post is correct it will work with higher capacity disks also

146 GB and 300 GB HDDs work fine with this server. Prashant dude I work for HP I'm a Server Support Engineer III and we don't say that 300 GB HDDs are not supported, 'cause those drives ARE supported.

Thanks
