  • HP ML110 G3 Hard Drives


    I have a HP ML110 G3 server and want to fit some Seagate drives. The Maximum the server would take according to HP is 500GB. HP drives are to expensive and wounder if there might be any problems fitting Seagate drives?

    HP will only support those 500GB drives.
    If you look at the model numbers, and find the same grey-market model, it should be ok.

    basically, a 3.5" 500GB HP Branded Seagate drive is the same as a 3.5" 500GB aftermarket Seagate drive

    however, ifHP have information about your system they'll try and give you devices with the exact same firmware, which could potentially make a difference..
    i normally try and keep all the same level firmware in an array

      I'd be surprised if a G3 was still in warranty, we're onto the the G7 now.

      The 110 is (IME) not fit for purpose as a server anyway, and shame on HP for selling it as such. It's a low end desktop spec, no redundant PSUs and the crappy RAID controllers don't even support RAID 5.

      Anyhoo, leaving aside my prejudices, if the HP drives are too expensive you aren't going to replace it, so what tehcamel said holds. I agree about trying to get 2 identical drives as well.
