Hard Drive and XL Bracket Assembly Overview

Note - For the most up-to-date information about hardware and software support, refer to the Sun Fire X4800 Server Product Notes.

The hard drive and bracket assembly is located in the chassis at the front of the server. The Sun Fire X4800 server drive bay can support up to eight SAS-2 drives. Each drive must be mounted in an XL bracket (XL brackets are longer than standard size HD brackets). The XL bracket has a status indicator panel and lever that assists in the removal of the drive.

To maintain the integrity of the server cooling system, drive slots not occupied by a HD must be populated with a hard drive filler. The base Sun Fire X4800 server system supplies adequate power for maximum drive configurations.

Note - Drives are designated as customer-replaceable components (CRU).
