Nope, the server was one I installed myself using 2008R2 and the Dell drivers/tools that were included with the drive. Not changed anything else on the config or checked for firmware upgrades.

I did do a lot of searching before purchasing it and nothing I found said that it wouldn't work, the imation site mentioned the Dell RD1000 which what made me plump for it in the end. Imation - RDX® HDD Cartridges - on the features tab if that's any use.
