We have two storage arrays (CX500 and CX300) in our environment. We recently upgraded all the 146 GB disks with 300 GB disks in CX300. So we have plenty of 146GB disks available. Before taking the diks out I deleted all the LUNs and destryed the RAID group.
I have a failed disk drive in CX500 (146GB) which is a part of RAID5 raid group (five disks). My question is, can I just replace the faulty disk with the one taken out from CX300.
The disks that came out of CX300, do they contain any metadata? and is there any special way of cleaning it before it can be used any other RAID group on a different storage array?
