TD350 from 8 drives to 16 or 32 drives FRU Numbers

Hi,

 

It's for TD350 Lenovo Server: https://lenovopress.com/lp0053-thinkserver-td350-e5-2600-v4#locations-of-key-components-and-connecto...

I have a doubt about how could I setup a TD350 server from 8 drives to 16 or 32 drives?
How could  I connect and what's necessary to that configuration as the air duct (00FC296),power and signal cables, expander, backplanes, two 720ix controllers(03T8595), Y cable(00FC201) and so on. I´ll need to understand it and order the FRU numbers correctly.

Tks

Please be advised that the TD350 is a withdrawn server and is no longer manufactured by Lenovo. 

The initial part you would have needed to upgrade from 8 to 16  HDD are actually mentioned in the Lenovo press documents you highlighted:

Part Number 4XF0G45886

And to upgrade from 16 to 32 HDD’s you would need:

Part Number 4XF0G88928

Please keep also in mind that you might need a different power supply, depending on the amount of drives you are installing.   If you have two power supplied installed then they must be identical. 

Information on how to install the hardware and what steps are needed can be found in the User Guide and Hardware Maintenance Manual:

As I mentioned the originally was announced in 2014, so not sure if you can easily get the needed hardware. As a suggestion you might be able to get part via IT Exchange.
