IBM System x3650 MT:7979 - Hard Drive compatiblity.

Hi Team,

We are building a redundancy server out of an old IBM x3650 MT:7979
Do you know if we can use generic HDD's or if have to use IBM specific?

Cheers

For a RAID array to work reliably, you need IBM certified disks, or at least enterprise class disks. But the IBM ones will have the correct firmware so those are the better option.
