4TB Drive in Sun StorEdge 3511


Today I installed an after market drive, a Hitachi Deskstar 4 TB SATA-3 drive into one of our Sun StorEdge 3511 Chassis as a potential replacement for the 400 GB drive installed in the last chassis.

It looked good for a moment, the system identified the new drive, scanned the drive and reported it full functioning, of course it was not all good news. The System only saw the drive as a 1.7TB drive, less than 50% of the drive.

Darn, Guess it is back to installing 2 TB drives instead.
