hard drives for proliant 5000

Could someone tell me if
Compaq P/N : 127891-001
will work in a proliant 5000?
I don't want to waste my $$$ if I can't use them.
Thanks, Chuck

That is a 9.1-GB Ultra2 7.2K drive. First it is 68pin drive for internal SCSI so, yes, you can use any 68pin for internal use. It is none hot swap so can not be use in the external hot swap cage.
Last of all why would you use a 9GB when a 18 or 36 is probebly the same price

Thanks for the info. They were on ebay for cheap. Where can I find a list of parts that will work with the 5000? I haven't been on this site for a while and can't remember where I used to find the specs and stuff.

This is a long url, but it should work: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DocumentIndex.jsp?contentType=SupportManual〈=en&cc=us&docIndexId=179911&taskId=115&prodTypeId=15351&prodSeriesId=254879

Lotsa good info on the 5000.

Chuck,

Here's the original QuickSpecs document on this server from HP's Product Bulletin Page, Archive section:

http://h18004.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/North_America_01-1998/50035_na.PDF

You'll find the original part numbers for disks that were compatibile with this server, but the fastest drives ever supported on this model were Wide-Ultra SCSI-3 (40Mbps) 10,000 rpm drives.

You can still purchase these drives from after-market vendors. I've had the most like with a company called Chestnut Micro (www.chestnutmicro.com). Good luck.
