I have a reconditioned D10 & I have installed some hard drives. However I need to find the SAS to SAS HDD "Combination cable" that connects the HDD to the Motherboard.
I have researched but I cannot find it.
I also intend to put a couple of SATA drive in as well, hence I will also need the SATA to SAT HDD "Combination cable". I have looked at the D10 Service Training Videos but I did not appreociate that they would not already be in the unit until I opened it this evening.
Some of the HDD Blanks were in very tight so the plastic caddie in which they site broke - the handles do not appear to be very strong - or they were overtight so I need a suite of those as well.
Can anyone point me in the right direction. I do not think I am the only person to have this issue.
Many thanks in advance.
Lovely unit by the way - so it will be upgraded as we speak.

the SAS cable FRU number is 41R5513. search for that number online and you should be able to find a local supplier.
on the plastic caddie, make sure you pinch the sides together before pulling the tray outward. i've not yet heard of one cracking so you're officially the first.
unfortunately i cannot locate the FRU number for just the tray. since it broke, you might try calling lenovo service to see if they'll replace it under warranty.
if i can locate the part number then i'll post it for you.
