SUN 480R - WIll this hard dirve work?

I have a SUN 480R and want to replace the internal hard drives with larger ones.
Will a Seagate ST3146807FC 146 GB Hard Drive work in a SUN 480R?
Do you know how many drives will fit in a SUN 480?
I am currently running SUN Solaris 10 on this box and need more space.

I looked on Sunsolve but was not sure where to find this info.

Hi,

The link below is the data sheet for V480. It says 2 internal FC disks. Regarding the higher capacity disks, I think it should work as long as it is FC and from Sun. For 3rd party, you need to contact sun for the support.

omarfarid,

Thanks for the link.  Could you tell me how I can order a Sun disk drive?
I don't know much about what hardware matches what configuration.
I have looked on SUN's site but could not find hard drives.  Do you have to go through a var?

Yes, 2.  There are mounting plates which you might need if you are not actually replacing
existing disks.

The models you specified will work. As you said, they are ST3146807FC, and Sun OEMs ST3146707FC for that
model, which is just a slightly older model.  From Sun you want part #390-0280

Thank you blu for all the clarifications.

In some countries you need to order from authorized suppliers and not from sun directly.
