faulty hard drive question

ive got a 2x160 gb hard drives in my proliant dl180 server and i have raided them together into raid 1


one of the drives went faulty so i called HP and they sent me a 250gb hard drive instead of a 160gb, i said it is part of a raid and will the 250gb one they sent me still work with the 160gb in the raid array, they said yes it will


will the 250gb work with the 160gb in the raid array, please?

Re: faulty hard drive question

Yes, 250GB drive will work in this situation. Just confirm that the RPM of both HDDs are same.
The RAID will only use 160GB of space from the new HDD as required by RAID configuration in your sitation.
