Need a new RAID 1 drive.

I have two drives as RAID 1. I want to get a spare but without stopping the server I am not sure of the make and model. Can I in fact just buy any drive as long as it is the same capacity? I think it should be a SAS type?

Without the make and model of the server you will not be able to determine if you can add the disk with out stopping/shutting down the server.

 

You need more nformation before you purchase.

The server is either 110/G5 or 115/G5 but it's the make and model of the existing drives I am querying i.e. do I just need a 1Tbyte drive of any make or model or must the spare be of the same make/model (which may not be available now)?

Same make and model.

 

Note that your server does not have hot swop disks and you will have down time installing the drive.

if your using the embedded RAID controller then the drives are SATA not SAS.
