Nope... Running the drives off the internal 5709 on the 520. The reason I stopped raid is that the new raid cards use a different stripe pattern. Then system will convert on the the fly to the new format, but I wanted to control when that happened. The real point was that I was able to take "ALL" the configured DASD in my case and plug them in to the new system and IPL. I didn't need to do a loadsource migration or an restore beacause I was able to bring all 8 of by 17gb 10K drives over. _____________________ Kirk Goins CCNA Systems Engineer, Manage Inc.

Mike, I doubt that a 2748 will work in a 520, besides you have to have another system frame (0595) for the number of disks you are moving. The main system frame holds only up to 8 disks which are controlled by the internal controller.
