using wd re4 disks on an HP proliant ml350 g8 server
Posted on 2012-08-22
I have a question, the school where I work at had an hp proliant server ml110 g5 which has stopped working, we had just purchased 4 disks, 2 wd re4 500gb and 2 wd re4 2TB SATA drives.
Now I wish to purchase an HP ML350e g8 (B120i embedded controller with 512mb cache) server but the included disk bays are said to be hot swappable but includes at least 4 blanks caddies for regular (non hot swappable) disks, so I am assuming they will be installable and RAID 1 will work for the 2 500gb disks where system partition and programs will reside). Could someone please confirm whether these disks would work with such a server?
From reading the online manuals it seems so but just would like to be absolutely sure since its too late to buy hp disks which cost almost double compared to the RE4 disks.
Thank you in advance for any help.
