V5R3
Hello Have a client at V5R3. Before I can upgrade them, I had to order 2 additional disk units. I will need to install them. Not being a hardware guy, I am not really sure what is involved. I was told that I just had to pull off the front panel, and then, pop the new disk into the empty slots. From here, go into Service Tools, and then add the additional disks. (Need to make sure that Raid is on as well. Can anyone point me to documentation (how to instructions), that will assist me in this. I realize it sounds simple, but, not ever having done this before, I would appreciate any feedback. Thank you Nick

Adding additional storage device to your computer system needs some factors to consider. The very first thing you have to consider is the compatibility of the storage device to your computer system. You also need to consider the operating system and other hardware devices that might interfere with the proper function of the disk device

    Hello, One thing to remember when installing disk drives is not to mix disk sizes within an array. If you have 5 slots and there are already 2 70G drives and you have any other size, do not add them in with this array. TPinky

    Hi, I believe as long as you add disks in pairs, they should work OK with the raid - but if you mix disk sizes within the same array it can lead to performance problems. We have this problem at my location - the disks on our machines have been upgraded several times, with varying disk sizes and it's causing major performance problems for us. We have a whole bunch of disks on order (all the same size) to replace the existing disks, which should cure the problems. Regards, Martin Gilbert.
