Normally it is recommended that you use identical drives if possible or at least identically spec'd drives. jitpublisher a b G Storage September 25, 2012 2:34:23 PM dvanmoorlehem said:I have 146GB 15K Hot Swap drives in a RAID 5 configuration in my ML370 G4 server.

If the capacity of the 10k drive is only one block smaler then the one of the 15k drives it will not work. It only works, if it's bigger ore the same size. dvanmoorlehem September 25, 2012 2:58:02 PM Thanks, I will check the spec's carefully. Performance issues are not a big concern.
