I bought a Compaq Proliant ML370 off of eBay for $100. I added two 1Ghz processors to it, it has 1Gb of ram, and three Compaq 18.2GB Ultra2 SCSI hard drives. A couple of weeks ago I installed Windows 2003 Server and I've let it run the whole time. It looks like one of the hard drives failed. The system is reporting that the drive in slot 0 is bad.
The three drives are setup in a hardware raid 5. When I replace the drive, do I have to find a drive that is exactly the same specs as the others or can I buy something else? I am not too familiar with RAID except for the basic theory behind it. So, please let me know what my options are with replacing this one drive. It will be difficult in finding one (if not more)drives exactly like this one, and expensive to replace all three with larger drives.
