After upgrading an existing 8203-E4A machine (i5/OS, V5R4M5) with 2x139 HDDs feature code #3677, i see in the "Work with disk units-> Display Disk Configuration Protection" that the model of disk units added are 090.
The array is RAID5 and have 6 HDDs. 3 HDDs are 099, 2 HDDs are 090 and 1 is hotspare.
Does it mean that this 2 HDDs added to the ASP1, doesn't contain parity bits?
Are they protected? (i mean if one of them have problems will the array protected again?)
Info: When i see from strsst "Work with Disk Units" in "Display Device Parity Status" i see them active, also in "Display Disk Hardware Status" i see them RAID-5/Active.
If you need more details, please let me know.
