Unless I miss my guess 1956 is the F/C for a small form factor 283GB 10K
RPM SAS disk in the 'extended' tray for use in FC #5877 drawers with the
IBM i operating system. If you 'convert' it for use with
AIX/Linux(including VIOS) it effectively becomes a FC #1925 300GB disk unit.
This conversion is accomplished by reformatting it in VIOS. Thing is
what you're going to do with it matters. If you're going to have just
two and mirror them then it gets formatted one way and if it's going to
participate in a RAID set then it gets formatted another way.

Rob, what is a1956 drive?? Are you referring to creating a VIO partition
to basically use that drive to host VIO server.
