I have an IBM server with 2x 146.8GB 10k RPM SAS drives.
Both drives are in RAID 1. The second drive failed a few days ago. I have looked to order the part (IBM P/N: 26K5838) and have had no luck.
My boss however has gone ahead and ordered a 320GB 15k SAS drive to replace the failed drive. Does anyone know if this will just be plug and play, or as I think, maybe cause issues and have me build a new array.
Drive speeds are different 10k vs 15k RPM
Drive sizes are different - 146gb vs 320gb
We cannot loose the data on the original array.
I need definitive answers, from experience (Sorry kids, don't reply).
