comment Our security auditor is an idiot. How do I give him the information he wants?
You have a run on sentence. Otherwise, it's pretty much what I'd write. "I strongly suggest you review your audit requirements, there is currently no way for us to pass this audit while remaining in compliance of PCI and the Data Protection act." You should have an "as" after the first comma. Also, BCC your supervisor. I think they'll find his request.. interesting.

Apparently it's a pretty standard practice throughout the industry. For a 160GB drive and it's sled you'll be out $99 to Apple.

Frankly I'm not familiar enough with Xserves to know if that's possible. All I know is it has the three drive bays which use Apple's proprietary connector (hence the need for ridiculously priced drive sleds). Behind that, I don't know how their connected to the rest of the system.

I guess hitting enter on serverfault doesn't go to the next line, it submits. I was going to ask, did you need to flash any firmware?

The Xeon Xserve recognized the 3TB as a 2.2TB, or the G5 did?

I saw that document and that's what prompted the question. I think that Apple said 500GB because that's what they had at the time the G5's were made, much like they always understate the RAM limits for their laptops.

Yep. We've got an empty drive sled and we're buying another one. Thanks for the heads up though.
