lsi megaraid hospare assignment issue

Hi all,

On a LSI MegaRAID SAS 9280-8e I am trying to assign a disk as hotspare to a RAID10 group of 3*2=6 disks.
LSI webbios is not letting me do that..could it be because of the small size difference of the new disk?
The new one is 273.31GB whereas all others are 278.875GB.

many thanks,

RE: lsi megaraid hospare assignment issue

yep, it can be larger, but not smaller.

Thanks for your quick answer.
I guess these sizes are the maximum available, and since it is of another manufacturers, the sector count can slightly vary..hence the size difference.

And this was a Fujitsu-Siemens technician who came to fix the disk..
