t320 adding 4tb sas drive to current 600 possible?

I have a drive going bad on my t320 server. Do I need to replace the HDD with the same storage space and speed? or am I able to throw a 4tb 7.5k SAS drive on there 


current specs is (8) 600gb 15k on raid 10

Hello @davi99,


It is not recommended. The RAID container is a 600 GB; hence you will waste 3.4T of space. You will not be able to use the remaining space. If you replace a lower speed spindle drive, the RAID container will lower all remain drives too, hence the RAID10 will work in 7.5K instead of 15K. You will see significant performance issue.
