I have an x3200 IBM server, the maximum size drive that IBM will endorse for it is the IBM 300GB drive. Problem is, I have the 300's and they're full. I need to replace the physical disks rather than add NAS / SAN.
SO. Can I add any old 2.5" SAS drives to this box or do they REALLY need to be the IBM drives. The server is out of warranty, so support is not an issue as they won't help me anyway!
