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.
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.
