New DDS-4 on Proliant 1600

Hello

I would be able to install and DDS4 C5685C to a Compaq Proliant 1600 server serial number D853cfs10047 to replace the existing DDS-2

Regards

Sixto

Sixto,

I believe your DDS4 should work happily with your PL1600, although you may need to upgrade your BIOS and/or other firmware and drivers, depending on whether you have kept your box up-to-date.

The NT4 Proliant downloads can be found here:

Hi,

The HP C5685C unit should work fine.
You could also try the original Compaq version of the 20/40Gb internal DAT drive, 157769-B21. This is a Compaq version of the Sony SDT-10000 drive in Opal colour to match the PL1600 chassis.

HP, Compaq or Sony models will be OK in the Proliant 1600.

Regards,

Brian
