Seagate DKS2C-H2R0SS HDD - Latest firmware


We have received multiple Seagate ST32000444SS HDD model DKS2C-H2R0SS. We would like to confirm that those are NetApp HDD and determine if the firmware  is a Seagate one or a proprietary NetApp one and, in this that case, what would be the latest NetApp firmware available for this model.
Thank you in advance!

Hi there,


The "DKS2C" part suggests to me that it is originally from a Hitachi AMS system, not a NetApp one.


As far as I can tell, we haven't used any ST32000444SS drives, but we have used ST32000544NSS* drives as one of the X306A/X294/X299 2TB SATA drives.


Hope this helps!
