I have an alphaserver 1200 with two damaged disks. The exact DEC part is:
[quote:7528a28b15][b:7528a28b15]DS-RZ1CB-VW[/b:7528a28b15]
PLUGABLE ULTRA WIDE SCSI 4.3GB
3 1/2" 7200 RPM 1 5/8" Height SCSI Hard Disk Drive

I can not find a replacement part so I want to fix it my self. Is the drive in the hotswap box a normal 50 ( or 68 ) pin SCSI drive? How to open it? Or it is not meant to be open by the end user and it is not possible to replace the failed drive inside?

I know that third-party resellers have them in the US, but that doesn't help you much.

However, you can pop the blue case open and replace the drive with a VMS supported SCSI drive (any good quality SCSI drive will likely work okay). The case is mainly just a carrier. Inside are all the typical cables/power connections for the drive, and interfaces it to the connector on the back of the case.

In a server, the chassis-mounted hard drives can be hot-swappable . 1. Identify the location of the hard drive that you want to replace (FIGURE 4-6).

The problem was fixed more than an year ago smiley
Inside these boxes are 1 inch in height SCA drives. They fit even 1,6 inch height drives. (One of the replacements I used is 18G 1.6 inch).
The only tricky part is to open the box - if remember correctly there are no screws, just some plastic pins to push.

HPE only makes the most current version of OpenVMS Alpha / IA64 /VAX available to hobbyists. When I had access to the Alliance 1 program it was the same. No public downloads are allowed by HPE.

lation/ For the most part just use VMS 6.1 media instead of 7.3. But why run the older release?

The openvms disks question is frequently answered in the forums, and is not something to ask about in the shout box.
