We have 4 scsi drives on an Adaptec RAID AAA-133U2. Three made up the RAID and the fourth was a hot spare. The second drive in the chain, scsi #1 went bad so the hot spare which was the fourth drive in the chain, scsi #3, took its place. I need to remove scsi #1 to return it to Fujitsu since it is under warranty.
If I remove the second drive in the chain, scsi #1, can I leave the settings as they currently are for scsi #2 & #3
or do I have to change #2 to #1 and #3 to #2?
the 3 functioning drives are 7200 rpm. Will it be a problem if the replacement we get is 10,000 rpm if that is all they have available. The current size is 18.2gb.
If the replacement is 18.4 will that be a problem if that is all that is available.
