P410i - can't manage spares

Re: P410i - can't manage spares

I have a couple servers with non HP drives and except for the Gen8 models, I haven't had any issues. I can still make array changes and do whatever you can with an HP drive.

Lately, the vendor I use has HP drives at or even below some of the 3rd part drives like Axiom, so I do try to stick with HP drives when possible.

Your vendor might not be able to find an *exact* match, but trust me, there are compatible HP drives out there, they just might be something like using dual-port drives even if your system only uses a single port.

The HP qiuckspecs pages for your product are typically kept up to date, so if some drive option is no longer available, HP updates those with a compatible spare part #.
