rx2660

Hi,

I want to install an A9891A smart array controller in this rx2660 machine for internal raid. I notice I will need different internal cables to use to make this work. Does any one know the part number for these cables. Or will this raid card not do internal raid? I have found a doc about cabling but it does not reference the rx2660 which has different connectors on the drive backplane. Or do I need to use a P400 raid card for internal raid for HPUX?

Thank you

Hi Jon

Please see the rx2660 quickspec link below under the "I/O Architecture" section. This recommends using the P400 (mandatory for Windows based servers) or AD248A for HP-UX. A9891A won't work as this is a U320 SCSI card and the rx2660 uses SAS.....

Re: rx2660

The SA640x is for SCSI disks, but your server has SAS disks.

You need the P400 controller.

Hope this helps!

Re: rx2660

And not just any P400 - be certain to order the P400 via the part/product number that is for the rx2660 - you need to receive an additional daughter card to enable the low-profile PCIe slot on the motherboard into which you will insert the P400 card. http://www.hp.com/go/rx2660 should have a path to the correct product number to order.
