Overview

HP QuickSpecs

DL360G4p User Guide

Disks  The G4 was available with Ultra320 SCSI (2), SATA (2)and Serial Attached SCSI (4) drive bays. All of my G4s are fitted with 2 x Ultra320 SCSI disks as shown here. 
Cooling Cooling for the CPUs is provided by 4 x dual fans fitted to the removable tray at the front right of the server, the tray also houses the power button and diagnostic/status LEDs.

These fans have been the most frequent cause of faults/failures on my G4 servers and the issues are described in more detail below.
Ports Rear view, showing the two hot-plug PSU bays (empty), two PCI-X expansion slots (one half length), USB, VGA, PS/2 mouse & keyboard connectors, 2 x Gigabit RJ45 network connections and RJ45 Integrated Lights Out (ILO-2) management port.
Power SCSI & SATA Models:
460W Optional (1 + 1 redundant) power supply

I use redundant PSUs in my G4s that have redundant network connections, that is, all servers except the Domain Controllers. Windows server does not support dual-homed NICs for DCs, so they have single point failures already, e.g., the NICs and  ethernet switches, so introducing another single point of failure isn't really an issue.
