The consensus was as suspected, 'it's ok' - just need to fmthard the
from another (one of the older smaller disks) in the volume. Only
is a slight waste of space...

We have a Disksuite 4.2.1/Solaris 8 machine with which currently has
36.4GB Seagate SCSI drives in a
storage pack (Raid5&&0+1)

We can order IBM 36GB disks a lot quicker than we can the Seagate 36GB
disks; problem is the
IBM 36GB disks are ever so slightly larger than the Seagates. Question
is:  if we replace a failed
Seagate with the IBM 36GB disk, are we likely to run into any 'issue's
(assume we partition the disk
identically for the partitions we're mirroring etc.)
[we're running with the 108693-04 4.2.1 product patch]

Or, more generally, anyone know of any issues at all in basically
replacing a disk with a larger one
in Disksuite?
