I was browsing ebay one day and happened to type 'HP Integrity' (as one might) and an auctioned RX6600 with 4 1.4GHz procs, ohne HDDs appeared and I bought for £20! (from which I inferred something about the state of the economy).
It seems to run ok (HP ILo) (after getting the correct power cables, removing a quad of memory and having one of the PSUs -very dirty - go BANG) and so I wondered if anyone could advise which 2.5" SAS disks are suitable?
I find 300GB ones (quite cheap) listed under part no.s 492620-B21 or 439083-001 or 492619-002 BUT not the (what I guess is) the original part no. AM244A (but normally only stating as fitting PROLIANT machines). A similar situation for other disks (eg: 146GB).
Does it matter whether disks are single of dual port - I assume dual is superior?
If anyone has a PSU for sale or any 6600 parts or any Alphaserver 4xxx parts (just had a 450w PSU fail). I'd be interested.

The RX660 will take just about any of the HP 2.5" SAS disks in the HP carrier. You can even buy empty carriers and put in your own disks. For the most part all are compatible. Dual port SAS are intended for servers/storage shelves with multiple controller paths to the drives. Odds are your RX6600 just has one controller so the single port SAS drives are sufficient.
I have an RX2660 which uses similar drives and have picked up different kinds which all work okay with the P411 SAS RAID controller.
