Replacement for a hard drive model BD0728A4C4?

Hello,

Can one of the experts here verify that the drive pictured below is an acceptable substitute/replacement for a BD0728A4C4 drive in our server?

Check the spares part number, that will be your main key for a proper replacement.   A quick search on the number you provided shows it is an Ultra320 SCSI drive, if that is what you need then it should work

According to: http://h20566.www2.hpe.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docLocale=null&docId=emr_na-c02171562&sp4ts.oid=397642#N10052  is the BD0728A4C4 a U320/10k disk (SparePartNumber: 404709-001)

The BF0728A4C4 (in the picture) is a U320/15k (probably mounted on a 10k bay according to the wrong label).

So, in a RAID configuration where all the other disks are 15k and the remplacement is 10k, then you might get performance problems. If, however all the other disks are 10k and you install a 15k in it then the disk will operate at 10k, unless all the disks are replaced with 15k disks.

In your case i don't see thus any problems ...
