Re: Proliant 3000 drives in ML530

I think it depends on your Proliant 3000 model: earlier Proliant 3000 (with 300 MHZ CPU) models use 1.6 " drives and other Proliant 3000 models use 1 " drives.
You can use only 1 " drives in ML530.

Re: Proliant 3000 drives in ML530

Bear in mind that if the Proliant drives are 1" in size, they are probably Ultra3 drives (or slower). So all newer Ultra320 drives will run at lower speed if you plugin these drives to the same channel.

All the proliant 3000's that I've seen use the 1,6" drives though...
