I'm kinda new in the IBM server environment and I believe the raid configuration is raid1. I'm planning to replace the other drive as it's starting to develop errors, however I'm not sure if other brands of HDD will work on it. The drive of the server has a label of 'IBM System X' and looking at the model of the drive, it looks like it come from Seagate. If I purchase other brand of enterprise drive (ex. WD, Hitachi), will it run in the IBM server?
Also, it has a LSI Logic Manager, does this mean that it will automatically rebuild using the new disk (un-formatted or fresh from package) once inserted in the hotswap slot of the damaged drive?
Lastly, the server has two drives, but the other drive doesn't appear in the Disk Management and the type is Basic, which supposedly be in Dynamic considering it is a raid setup or it just a unique feature of IBM servers? Please feel free to enlighten or correct me if I'm mistaken.
I would appreciate any help. Thank you.
