Any SCSI should work but, to be in the safest position, buy with Sun.

  I read some time ago a report describing several dificulties with other brands, personaly I most of the times have luck, but few times it just does not work.

You don't need to find the correct type, just ask your Sun representative for one and that is it. If you are trying to get one on the cheap, try it, but be sure you can test the thing and you can change or give it back if it does not work.
