Thanks, got some information and it seems that Dell shipped us a
"Seagate-Cheetah-15K.4" drive and the utility "dellmgr" reports our 2850
as shipped has a "MAXTOR" drive.

I know Seagate purchased Maxtor so I'm trying to connect the dots as to
whether the drive inside that is bad has a Seagate label as the one
shipped "but" has MAXTOR firmware as to reveal to the utility "dellmgr"
that it's a MAXTOR drive.

Don't want to pull this server down till I can confirm this.
