Given that the drives in it are older, and I'd rather not waste time rebuilding failed RAID arrays if I don't have to, I was wondering if I should simply source replacement drives from HP or a third party reseller, or if I could simply source Ultra drives and shove them in. I've heard that HP has locks in place to ensure only their hardware could be used, but not having worked with this unit before, I am unsure. Second, I am well aware of the potential drives that had originally been intended for the DL G3, namely the maximal Gig capacities, and while this would still work for our needs, is there any reason why a larger capacity drive wouldn't work?
Still unsure if this is a hard limit. Also, no such indication of limit is given for SAS drives. Thank you for your thoughts. We intend to use the machine as the server for our building security cameras, since this unit has a great many high-bandwidth network connections and enough data capacity for a rolling video record. Honestly, if we didn't get the unit for free, we wouldn't bother but for the fact that the machine it is replacing is a modded old beast about 8 years its senior that sucks power like a hog classic case of "if it works, don't touch it".
If it dies, so be it, but in the meantime I'm inclined to just grab two Ultra's, since we already have two others new in a sealed package we may as well use. Thank you for your insight folks, perhaps one day I shall be able to return the favour. While I think that this is not an hard limit, the fact that you had to use old Ultra disks not newer SAS ones , let me think that you can not buy bigger disk at all.
Regarding the supported disks, from my understanding HP controller have no problem in working with 3dr party disks. Maybe someone with the very same controller can confirm this to you I don't think it's worth using this server in ANY situation right now. I'm not sure I understand the desire to use something for "non-critical functions" just because it's there. You can use any 3. Sign up to join this community.

A quick look at the QuickSpecs implies that at best the DL G3 was new in , so compared to todays standards it won't be very energy efficient, offers few cores and unless it was filled to capacity, little memory.
Driver support in modern OS's may be lacking too. So WHY? HBruijn That model was actually released in I had one in production. Regardless, there's no good reason to use one today.
