Caution:  Down-reving new systems received after March 1, 2009 to versions of SGOS to versions of SGOS prior to those listed below may result in disk drive errors and frequent reboots of the system.

  • SGOS, or later

  • SGOS versions such as 5.4.x, 5.5.x, and 6.x all have support for the newer hard drives.


Existing ProxySG 510 systems

Replacement drives through the RMA process:  Through February 1, 2010, Blue Coat will supply replacement drives through our RMA process that will work with existing versions of SGOS.

As of February 1, 2010, all disk drives shipped through Blue Coat's RMA process will require the updated versions of SGOS.  Those proxy administrators who are running existing SG510 systems should prepare to upgrade to one of the supported releases prior to February 1, 2010.


Common questions:

Q1:  Does my new ProxySG 510 have a new or old hard drive?

  • The RMA process will ship the 320GB drive to replace failed 300GB or 320GB drives

  • Through February 1, 2010, Blue Coat will supply replacement drives through our RMA process that will work with existing versions of SGOS.
