Working on a 6 year old Dell PowerEdge T310 server. There's a PERC6i/H700 (SAS/SATA) controller in there. with 4 hard drives in a raid 6 configuration, no hot spares.
Open manage says 1 drive status is predictive failure. These are 1TB 6Gb SAS 7,200 RPM drives
Some more info, from the dell support webpage for this service tag: Dell p/n FNW88 HARD DRIVE, 1T, NL6, 7.2K, 3.5, S-MEG, E/C
And from OpenManage:
Model MK1001TRKB. IT says the firmware on all the drives are DCA8 and the latest firmware available is DCAA ( so I could update that... and openmanage itself. But I don't want to rock the boat too much right now).
Vendor ID DELL(tm)
Product ID MK1001TRKB
Serial No. 6190A040FLD6
Part Number PH07KXJR7557116905RAA00
Sector Size 512B
Manufacture Day 05
Manufacture Week 24
Manufacture Year 2011
So can you help me find the right drive / would these work?
This is 12Gb throughput. That's more than the others... OK?
THis is 6Gb throughput but more money
if I google the 7JXKR, I get loads of companies selling refurbished drives. Don't think I want that?
Any advice would be appreciated!
And then to install it, you just take out the old drive while the system is on and replace it with the new drive? The system rebuilds THEN do firmware and Openmanage updates?
