Looking at picking up a 711 Multipack 12-bay... And wondering about
gotchas. I am planning on using it with an SS20 + F/W SCSI card. I
am wondering two main things:
- I've read (don't know where) that there is something special about
using 12 disks, and that some systems only see 6. Is this because it
uses SCSI IDs 8 and up? Shouldn't be a problem on a wide bus, right?
- Are the disks hot-swappable? Not in the sense that Solaris would be
aware of it, but if I had /foo mounted on, say, disk 3, could I
unmount it, pull the drive, replace it, and remount /foo without
- The box has some serious fan power. Still, I am hoping on using
some older 18/36gb disks with some newer ones. Will heat be an issue,
Thanks very much.
