Note - For the most up-to-date information about hardware and software support, refer to Sun Server X2-8 (formerly Sun Fire X4800 M2) Product Notes.
The hard drive and bracket assembly is located in the chassis at the front of the server. The Sun Server X2-8 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 Server X2-8 system supplies adequate power for maximum drive configurations.
Note - Drives are designated as customer-replaceable units (CRU).
