You got a killer deal on that V210, and I wouldn't complain about paying
The linked to bracket is what you need. Those brackets have been used
on a lot of machines from Ultra 1 through Ultra 80, as well as Sun 711
arrays, and various enterprise machines like E250/E220r/E420r, and of
course the V210 and V240s.
One thing to watch for is the screws. A lot of screws that fit in the
screw hole have a head thick enough to impede inserting a disk into the
machine. I was just banging my head on finding screws with thin enough
heads to fit Sunday night.
