I have one of these, too. (Just received it recently.) The first one of
these I saw was some 8(?) years ago attached to a SPARC 20. The SSA was
populated with *one* gig drives. The one I have has 24 x 2G drives. I
have some 4 and 9 G drives, I have access to some 18 and 36 G drives. I
may just try them and see what happens.
I have also heard that 9G is the max. Any one have more info here?
