Using single and dual port disks in the same array
Posted on 2011-02-17
I have an HP ML350G5 server running Windows 2003 Server, and I have 5 x 146GB 10K SAS Sinigle Port disks. These disks have all been setup on 1x RAID 5 array.
We will now be expanding the storage space by adding 3 more disks. I placed the order with my supplier, but he has supplied me 3 x SAS 10K 46GB DUAL PORT disks.
I'm not very knowledgable when it comes to hardware, hence i just wanted to know if it would be possible to mix single and dual port disks on the same RAID 5 array. I'd imagine since this server is nearly 4 years old, it wouldn't be easy to get sinigle port disks anymore.
Appreciate your help.
