9111-285 Drive Trays

Unread postby stek1961 » Tue Dec 14, 2010 8:13 am

Can anyone tell me if they are specific to this model or can I use from other models? I suspect the latter but Ebay is revealing millions of different types of IBM Drive trays and I nearly won the wrong ones!

Or if anyone has any spare ones...

I have a 9111-285 and a 9114-275 and can swap trays between the two computers without any problems.
Unfortunately I have no spare ones at the moment...

I have the same issue - lack of trays.

Are the trays from any xSeries IBM server compatible with these of the intellistations? I was looking at some ebay and local offerings but would be great is someone with xSeries to confirm interchangeability.

xSeries? If that's the trays for the x86 based IBM servers, no, they're not compatible.

yes, xSeries is the x86 server line of IBM. Thanks for the info.

I found the trays from my 7046-B50 fit fine even if the rails are a shade tight.
