Will an RE4 HDD Drive work in my Dell T300 PowerEdge Server?


#1

Hi My T300 is a basic spec machine, it just has the C1 Motherboard SATA Cabled, and has the stock embedded SATA (No Raid, 1-4)

I am going to be using my T300 as a low cost data (music) store, non raid using three additional SATA cabled HDD drives as descrete storage units i.e. drive E, F & G.

This is my boot drive

I know that this RE3 Enterprise class drive WD1002FBYS

http://www.wdc.com/en/products/products.asp?driveid=503

drive will work

Do you know if this RE4 drive model WD2003FYPS

http://www.wdc.com/en/products/products.asp?driveid=732

Basically RE3 drives are fine but will WD RE4 drives work in my server?

Thanks for your help,

Simon

I have bought two WD2003FYYS Drives so hopefully they will be fine.

All the best for 2011

By way of an update I installed three 2TB RE4 drives as I specified above with a careful format they, seem to be fine thus far. I will continue to test before I populate them.
