SCSI HDD Replacement
Posted on 2007-10-03
This is abit of an urgent call for help, I've got a IBM X226 (86485BM) Tower Server at a client site,
and one of the disks which belongs to a 3disk raid 5 has become deflunct, I've called IBM, and the
warrenty on the machine is just finished, and a new replacement 73gb 10k Ultra320 hdd from ibm is around
$1200.00 and will take 7-10 working days....I need it like yesterday as the machine is in production.
My question to you guys is can i replace that hdd with a generic? eg seagate? of the same size and speed?
Will the interfaces on the back be the same? And will the raid5 accept the new drive?
Any suggestions guys, any help will be greatly appreciated.
Im not too familiar with scsi systems, as most sites i work at run full SATA rather than SCSI.
