Can i mix 146 single port SAS and dual port SAS HDDs to create a raid5 in DL360G5?

customer need get HP officical documentation to clarify if can mix 146 single port(DG146ABAB4) SAS and dual port SAS (DG146BD976 ) HDDs in DL360G5

i got HP SAS 2.5” Hard Drive Compatibility Table:
ftp://ftp.compaq.com/pub/products/servers/proliantstorage/drives-enclosures/SAS%202.5_Mar08.pdf

but it doesn't say that single and dual port SAS HDDs can be mixed in same server.

does anyone has document to clarify it ?

Yes, you can use dual-port SAS disks on a DL360 G5, and combine them with single-port drives because the server will only use one port per disk anyway.
