I'm looking at buying a 3 year old blade server. My question is, if I buy it and want to insert a current model blade, will it fit?
Also, if the chassis goes "POP" and I need to replace it, will the current model chassis fit 3 year old blades?
What about Power supply replacements?
The chassis I'm looking at is this:
- IBM FRU / PN: M8677-3XM with DVD reader
The blades are all IBM HS20's.
We've had a good run with IBM hardware and although there is some nice ex-lease HP hardware available, my understanding is that backwards comparability is not so well maintained. Is this true?
