Blue Coat is updating hard disk drives (HDD) for all models of the Proxy SG600 appliance.
New 500GB HDDs will replace existing 250GB drives that are no longer manufactured.
The 500GB HDDs are fully supported and functionally equivalent to the previously used 250GB drives.
Blue Coat has thoroughly tested and approved the use of these HDDs for all Proxy SG600 models.
SG600s built with 500GB HDDs will commence shipping imminently.
Blue Coat will provide like-for-like RMAs for 3 months from the date of this announcement.
This will result in mixing drives of different sizes in a single appliance.
Blue Coat will not retroactively be replacing existing HDDs.
NOTE: Updated SGOS code is required to properly recognize the 500GB drives.
A SG600 MUST be running one of the supported SGOS versions BEFORE inserting a RMA HDD.
A Proxy SG600 with a 500GB HDD that is NOT running one of the supported SGOS versions, will display "unsupported configuration" in the SYSINFO:
