Ultra 40 - 1 TB SAS disk

Sorry, I originally posted this in "General -- Maintenance", can't figure out how to move it.

Does anyone know if the Ultra 40 M2 will recognize a 1 TB SAS disk, and/or will a 1TB SAS disk work OK in the Ultra 40 M2?

I don't think that SAS disks over 300GB were available when the U40 was an active product. Is there any reason to think that a
1TB SAS disk would not work? The specs say that 750GB SATA disks were supported, as I recall.

    long delay but

    the sas controller is based on the LSI SAS3081E so check the notes from but it does work even with the 1.5TB as a friend can testify

    Sun Ultra™ 40 M2 Workstation Product Notes:

    Failure to Power-Up With 8 x 750 Gb Drives
    Systems with eight 750 Gb hard drives might fail to power-up. If this happens,
    perform the following workaround.
    1. Turn off the system.
    2. Remove one of the 750 Gb drives.
    3. Power up the system.
    This issue is under investigation.
