Internal Drives N4000

I am trying to upgrade my internal disks in our N4000's from 9 to 18 Gbyte drives. Can someone verify if I have the correct replacement part?

Re: Internal Drives N4000

If I may add:
15,000rpm drives save a *lot* on ignite restore and fresh install times.

Re: Internal Drives N4000


Yes thats correct

from the config guides

9gb A5505A
18gb A5531A
36gb A6089A

and you can only install two drives internally

Re: Internal Drives N4000

You might ask hp about the availability of the A5531AR (remarketed) if they can't supply the A5531A. If none, then ask about the 36GB version, again with an R at the end for remarketed, if new ones are no longer available.
