Thanks to all who replied.
Here're some of suggestions:
David Schiffrin <email@example.com>:
I've used non-sun drives in SSA's and Sun machines.
Try falcon for drive brackets. www.falcons.com They just got bought
by artecon, but I suspect they've still got the brackets for sale.
Eugene Kramer <firstname.lastname@example.org>:
Rave (www.rave.com) sells them for about $70 apiece.
Rich Kulawiec <email@example.com>:
I'd say that going through Usenet's misc.forsale.computers.workstation
is probably a good way to find them. All sorts of Sun-related
equipment is for sale there every day.
All you helped me to convince my local Sun provider to sell me
Thank you again.
Here's the original question:
> We have a number of sparc storage arrays with 6x4G disks.
> We would like to add more disks to SSA-114. We have available
> six non-SUN single-connected disks (Seagate ST34572WC), but
> we need ONLY SUN`s plastic frames to insert them into SSA. Our local
> SUN reseller refused to sell that plastic frames and offers us to buy
> six SAME DISKS (they differ by firmware only) supplied with such
> So, the question is:
> 1. Does anybody knows where can we buy such frames ?
> 2. Does anybody has experience in working with non-SUN
> disks under SSAs ?
> Any help will be highly appreciated and summarized.
> Thank you.
