One Global Hot Spare for MD1200 and T610?

This question is not answered

T610 with H700 and a MD1200 connected via H800.  

Can a drive in the T610 function as a Global Hot Spare for both the MD1200 and the T610?  

I have spare drive bays in the T610, however the MD1200 drive bays are all occupied.  Thus the reason I want to use a drive bay in the T610 for a Global Hot Spare which will cover the MD1200.

Thanks for any help with this!

  • Hello Jeff,

    No you can’t create a global hotspare on your T610 & have it cover your MD1200. The reason is that there are 2 different raid controller that are controlling your virtual disk. The controller in your T610 is for the drives in the T610 where as your second controller is for your MD1200.

    Please let us know if you have any other questions.
