I am getting ready to add drives to my Dell PE and I ordered the new drives and rails from Dell and I gave them my service tag number so I would get the right drives.  Well today I noticed that  the new drives a the same size but they are Fujitsu Limited and the drives in my Server are Seagate.  

Is this going to be a problem?

No ... the manufacturer doesn't matter => just the characteristics of the drives (which I'm sure are correct).

... if you want even more reassurance, post the exact model #'s of both the Seagate and the Fujitsu drives  [or just compare their specifications for yourself].

I have to agree with garycase.  I have been in the same situation and have used different models for a Dell PE and they worked fine.  As long as they are the same size and pin you should be good.

I have them running now.  They just got finished with reconstruction and now it is doing background initialization.  I thought it would be done after the reconstruction.
