Summary of drive enclosure cabling illustrations
The following illustrations show both reverse and straight-through cabling examples featuring
S3200/S2200 controller enclosures and compatible E1024 (2U24), and E1012 (2U12) drive enclosures.
The rear-panel views of the E1024 and E1012 are identical. All storage enclosures use mini-SAS connectors
NOTE: The S3200/S2200 controller enclosures and compatible drive enclosures support 6 Gb SFF-8088
mini-SAS connectors for adding storage. See

The figures above show examples of an S3200 or S2200 controller enclosure cabled to a single drive
enclosure. Supported drive enclosures are ordered separately.
NOTE: The E1024 and E1012 drive enclosures can be configured with single or dual expansion canisters.
empty IOM slot in each of the enclosures is covered with an IOM blank to ensure sufficient air flow during
enclosure operation. The illustration on the right shows cabling of enclosures equipped with dual IOMs.
The remaining illustrations in the section feature enclosures equipped with dual IOMs.
IMPORTANT: If the S3200/S2200 controller enclosure is configured with a single controller module, it
must be installed in the upper slot, and an I/O module blank must be installed in the lower slot (shown
above). This configuration is required to allow sufficient air flow through the enclosure during operation.
See the "Replacing a controller or expansion module" topic within the Lenovo CRU Installation and
Replacement Guide for additional information.
