Err, you dont!

They are not designed to do this.
Both those units are main 'head' units for individual SANs.
The expansion ports are only for adding extra disk trays / shelves.

In the case of the 2312sa G2 it can support upto 4 MSA2000 disk enclosures.

in the case of the G3, if its a LFF it can support upto 7 P2000 disk enclosures or if SFF, upto 5 x D2700 disk enclosures.


Hope this helps.

(Sorry, just noticed I used 3 different terms for the same thing! Tray / Shelf / Enclosure, are all interchangeable!)

Some also support MSA70 enclosures, the quickspecs have the details for each generation of the MSA2000.
