I've got a used Sun Blade 2500. What HDs are compatible with it? Dos it
support only SUN specific hard drives ('Sun's page'

146-GB, 10,000 RPM, Ultra 320 SCSI drives), or some other SCSI HDs
should work there too? If yes, which ones?

(I plan to install OpenSolaris there).

Thanks.


Any SCSI drive with a 80 pin SCA connector will do, below is a 300GB Hitachi drive added.

You can also using a SAS adapter(from LSIlogic) add SAS/SATA drives but not boot from them I think.

I have two LSI 3041X models and so far no luck with booting from them in either my Blade 2000 or 2500. While booting is supported (3041X have OBP firmwares) it gives PCI bus errors. This seems to be a Solaris problem as I can boot OpenBSD 4.5 from it in my Blade 2500.
