The D3284 expansion enclosures include the following items:
- One chassis with the following components:
- Dual 3-port environmental service modules
- Two drawers
- Two power supplies
- Five cooling fans
- Drives (select models; see Table 2 and Table 3 for details)
- Two 2m, 16A/100-250V, C19 to IEC 320-C20 rack power cables (models listed in Table 2 and Table 3), or two customer-configured power cables (CTO models)
- Lenovo Storage 12Gb High Density Rack Mount Kit - Rails 25"-33"
- Documentation package
The D3284 drive enclosures support dual environmental service module (ESM) configurations. Each ESM has three universal 12 Gb SAS x4 ports (Mini-SAS HD SFF-8644 connectors) labeled A, B, and C. These ports are used for connections to a supported SAS RAID controller or SAS HBA installed in a server and for daisy chaining the D3284 enclosures between each other or with the D1212 or D1224 enclosures.
Port A on each ESM is used for connecting the host's external SAS ports to the enclosure, or for connecting Port C on each ESM in the adjacent enclosure for daisy chaining. Port B on each ESM is used for connecting the host's external SAS ports to the enclosure (daisy-chaining does not use Port B). Port C on each ESM is used for connecting the host's external SAS ports to the enclosure, or for connecting Port A on each ESM in the adjacent enclosure for daisy chaining.
The expansion enclosures support single I/O path and dual I/O path connectivity topology. For single I/O path configurations, each port on the adapter can be connected to a separate chain of expansion enclosures by using the ESM A in each connected enclosure. For dual I/O path configurations, each port on the 2-port RAID adapter or HBA is connected to a different ESM chain within the same chain of enclosures. For specific configuration limits, refer to SAS RAID controllers and HBAs.
For SAS RAID controllers, the controller's firmware manages multiple I/O paths to SAS drives. For SAS HBAs, the host operating system runs multi-pathing software to manage multiple I/O paths.
Up to four D3284 drive enclosures, or two D3284 and two D1212 drive enclosures, or two D3284 and one D1224 drive enclosures can be daisy-chained with support for up to four hosts attached to the chain. Without daisy-chaining, a standalone D3284 drive enclosure can support up to six directly attached hosts. In addition, up to two D3284 and up to two D1212 drive enclosures, or up to two D3284 and one D1224 drive enclosures can be daisy-chained with support for up to two hosts attached to the chain.
The following figures illustrate different host connectivity topologies.
For topologies with four or more hosts, SAS Y-cables are required to connect the hosts to the drive enclosure. The SAS Y-cable allows two hosts to be connected to one SAS port on the ESM.
The SAS zoning feature of the D3284 specifies how multiple hosts access drives in the enclosures. If SAS zoning is disabled, all attached hosts can access all drives in the enclosures, which is typically used in standalone single-host or clustered multi-host environments, where all cluster nodes need access to all drives. If SAS zoning is enabled, each connected host has exclusive access to a predefined set of drives in the same enclosure, and multiple hosts are isolated from each other.
- Attachment of more than one host to the same enclosure without SAS zoning enabled is supported with HBAs only (RAID controllers are not supported). While all attached hosts are capable of accessing all drives in the enclosures, the clustering software running on the hosts controls which cluster nodes have access to the drives at any given time.
- With SAS zoning enabled, only standalone enclosures without daisy-chaining can be partitioned for multiple host access.
- Expansion ports are not supported when zoning is enabled
The supported zone configurations are shown in the following table.
Note: Mode 0 means that zoning is disabled.

- Health Check
Having a trusted partner who can perform regular and detailed health checks is central to maintaining efficiency and ensuring that customer systems and business are always running at their best. Health Check supports Lenovo-branded server, storage, and networking devices, as well as select Lenovo-supported products from other vendors that are sold by Lenovo or a Lenovo-Authorized Reseller.
Some regions might have different warranty terms and conditions than the standard warranty. This is due to local business practices or laws in the specific region. Local service teams can assist in explaining region-specific terms when needed. Examples of region-specific warranty terms are second or longer business day parts delivery or parts-only base warranty.
If warranty terms and conditions include onsite labor for repair or replacement of parts, Lenovo will dispatch a service technician to the customer site to perform the replacement. Onsite labor under base warranty is limited to labor for replacement of parts that have been determined to be field-replaceable units (FRUs). Parts that are determined to be customer-replaceable units (CRUs) do not include onsite labor under base warranty.
If warranty terms include parts-only base warranty, Lenovo is responsible for delivering only replacement parts that are under base warranty (including FRUs) that will be sent to a requested location for self-service. Parts-only service does not include a service technician being dispatched onsite. Parts must be changed at customer’s own cost and labor and defective parts must be returned following the instructions supplied with the spare parts.
Lenovo support services are region-specific. Not all support services are available in every region. For information about Lenovo support services that are available in a specific region, refer to the following resources:

Here’s a more in-depth look at what we can do for you:
- Asset Recovery Services
Asset Recovery Services (ARS) helps customers recover the maximum value from their end-of-life equipment in a cost-effective and secure way. On top of simplifying the transition from old to new equipment, ARS mitigates environmental and data security risks associated with data center equipment disposal. Lenovo ARS is a cash-back solution for equipment based on its remaining market value, yielding maximum value from aging assets and lowering total cost of ownership for your customers. For more information, see the ARS page, https://lenovopress.com/lp1266-reduce-e-waste-and-grow-your-bottom-line-with-lenovo-ars.
- Assessment Services
An Assessment helps solve your IT challenges through an onsite, multi-day session with a Lenovo technology expert. We perform a tools-based assessment which provides a comprehensive and thorough review of a company's environment and technology systems. In addition to the technology based functional requirements, the consultant also discusses and records the non-functional business requirements, challenges, and constraints. Assessments help organizations like yours, no matter how large or small, get a better return on your IT investment and overcome challenges in the ever-changing technology landscape.
- Design Services
Professional Services consultants perform infrastructure design and implementation planning to support your strategy. The high-level architectures provided by the assessment service are turned into low level designs and wiring diagrams, which are reviewed and approved prior to implementation. The implementation plan will demonstrate an outcome-based proposal to provide business capabilities through infrastructure with a risk-mitigated project plan.
- Basic Hardware Installation
Lenovo experts can seamlessly manage the physical installation of your server, storage, or networking hardware. Working at a time convenient for you (business hours or off shift), the technician will unpack and inspect the systems on your site, install options, mount in a rack cabinet, connect to power and network, check and update firmware to the latest levels, verify operation, and dispose of the packaging, allowing your team to focus on other priorities.
- Deployment Services
When investing in new IT infrastructures, you need to ensure your business will see quick time to value with little to no disruption. Lenovo deployments are designed by development and engineering teams who know our Products & Solutions better than anyone else, and our technicians own the process from delivery to completion. Lenovo will conduct remote preparation and planning, configure & integrate systems, validate systems, verify and update appliance firmware, train on administrative tasks, and provide post-deployment documentation. Customer’s IT teams leverage our skills to enable IT staff to transform with higher level roles and tasks.
- Integration, Migration, and Expansion Services
Move existing physical & virtual workloads easily, or determine technical requirements to support increased workloads while maximizing performance. Includes tuning, validation, and documenting ongoing run processes. Leverage migration assessment planning documents to perform necessary migrations.
