System Disk Capacity Limits?

» close window

The Question is:

We mainly run Alphas on v7.1.
We have a MicroVax 3100 at a remote location that needs another SCSI disk. It
 is still running OpenVMS v5.5.
I seem to remember that there was a physical disk size limitation for
earlier versions of OpenVMS.
How large of a disk can we install under OpenVMS v5.5?
0.5 Gb?  1.5 Gb?  5.0 Gb?  8.0 Gb?
What is the RX## RZ## equivalent?
Is there a web page that shows that information?
Thank you.
