Per the spare disks listed below, can the second disk replace the first (mind the MB difference)?

Because the disk manufacturers are producing disks with diferent geometry, the Storage Companies need to find a way to work around this fact.
NetApp "right sizes" the disks to the lowest numbers of all disks they get (buy). I guess all the Storage Companies do some sort of right-sizing...
So, it does not depend on which disks you are adding to the system, they all are "right-sized" by ONTAP. I'm not aware of a table showing all the details, buit there is one in the "Storage Admin Guide" showing the "netto capacity" of all the disks available.
Hope this answers the question. Peter
