Upgrade DL380Gen9 with Expander Card 726821-B21


I want to upgrade a DL380Gen9 server with the Expander Card 726821-B21 but I can find no instructions in which slot I need to install the card. The second drive bay must also be installed. Instructions for the wiring would not be bad either. Can someone help me there ? regards Holger

Hi HolgerMehl,

The SAS Expander card is needed to enable 24SFF field upgrade. Its primary population is in slot2 or 3 of the Primary Riser.

The part number for the SAS Expander for DL380 Gen9 is 727250-B21.
