raid 5 rebuild with same model but different size hard drive
Posted on 2007-08-03
Adabtec 2100S Raid card
One of our hard drives went down which brought our raid down to degraded status. We ordered a replacement hd of the exact same model. Well the hard drive is a different revision and has about 280mb less storage space than the original. When I try to rebuild the drive is gives me a warning stating that the drive is smaller than the current raid are you sure you want to proceed
My questions is... How likely will the hard drive be successfull if I try to go ahead and put it in the Raid? Or do i need to get one that is larger than the current hard drives? A quick response would be greatly appreciated!!!
