Disk drives used in S3200/S2200 enclosures
S3200/S2200 enclosures support LFF/SFF Midline SAS, LFF/SFF Enterprise SAS, and SFF SSD disks. They
also support LFF/SFF Midline SAS and LFF/SFF Enterprise self-encrypting disks that work with the Full Disk
Encryption (FDE) feature. For information about creating disk groups and adding spares using different
disk drive types, see the Lenovo Storage Manager Guide or online help. For S3200 enclosures, also see
Controller enclosure — rear panel layout
The diagram and table below display and identify important component items that comprise the rear panel
layout of a Lenovo Storage S3200/S2200 controller enclosure. Dual 4-port CNC controllers are shown in
this representative example of controller enclosure models included in the product series. The rear panel
layout applies to the 2U24 and 2U12 form factors.
1 AC power supplies
2 Controller module A (see face plate detail figures)
A controller enclosure accommodates two redundant AC power supply CRUs (see two instances of callout
No.1 above). The controller enclosure accommodates up to two controller module CRUs of the same type
within the IOM slots (see callouts No.2 and No.3 above).
IMPORTANT: If the S3200/S2200 controller enclosure is configured with a single controller module, the
controller module must be installed in the upper slot (see callout No.2 above), and an I/O module blank
must be installed in the lower slot (see callout No.3 above). This configuration is required to allow sufficient
air flow through the enclosure during operation.
The diagrams with tables that immediately follow provide descriptions for the different controller modules
and power supply modules that can be installed into the rear panel of an S3200/S2200 controller
enclosure. Showing controller modules and power supply modules separately from the enclosure enables
improved clarity in identifying the component items called out in the diagrams and described in the tables.
Descriptions are also provided for optional drive enclosures supported by S3200/S2200 controller
enclosures for expanding storage capacity.
NOTE: S3200/S2200 enclosures support hot-plug replacement of redundant controller modules, fans,
power supplies, and expansion modules. Hot-add replacement of drive enclosures is also supported.
